“I can tell you from my personal experience that the staff at Muir Wood saved my family. My son was battling addiction and that battle was destroying him and us. It is my most sincere belief that only due to the extraordinary skill of the staff at Muir Wood is my family intact today.” – D.B., father of a Muir Wood Alumni
Muir Wood sets the standard for teen addiction treatment, with a philosophy that emphasizes respect and kindness over control or confrontation. In addition to addiction treatment, we diagnose and treat co-occurring disorders (such as trauma, grief, mood disorders, personality disorders, depression and anxiety), learning disabilities, and behavioral issues.
Our academic program provides a nurturing and challenging environment in which your son can fulfill his academic potential.
Your son has a number of academic options, including continuing to work with his current school on an independent study basis, or enrolling in our on-site classroom, the Muir Wood Learning Center. Either way, our academic staff is here to support your son in his academic and therapeutic recovery work.
Teen boys thrive at Muir Wood.

Our campus in Petaluma, California (just north of San Francisco), offers teen boys the safe and supportive environment they need for recovery.
Catering to the Individual
Teens today experience a unique set of pressures, and with the number of new drugs available at schools, on store shelves, and the ease of obtaining all forms of cannabis these days, it can be easy to slip into a path of addiction. As a parent, your first instinct may be to protect them from outside pressures.
At Muir Wood our staff is credentialed and highly qualified to cater to your teen’s individual needs. Our therapy programs delve deep into teen addiction issues and get to the root of the problem. By developing a unique program that utilizes proven addiction therapy techniques, we can help your son to achieve sobriety and start on a path to a new and rewarding way of life.
Marijuana abuse as well as prescription drug addiction are among the most prevalent issues teens come to our treatment center for but our individualized plans are devised to focus on any addiction, behavioral issue and/or any combination of co-occurring mental illness.
Treating Two Illnesses at Once
Dealing with a dual diagnosis can be difficult, but especially for teen boys. With all the pressures of school, becoming a man, and finding their place in the world, dealing with a co-occurring addiction and mental health issue can seem overwhelming.
At Muir Wood, we provide exceptional care for teens suffering from a dual diagnosis. Our staff are highly credentialed and qualified to deal with both addiction and other co-occurring mental disorders. Whether it’s ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, or a Major Depressive Disorder, our staff can outline an individualized treatment plan specific to your son’s needs. Contact us today to find out how we can help.
