While in treatment, patients have the opportunity to participate in a spiritual program voluntarily. JFBHS employs a full time chaplain who will assist patients in obtaining the resources requested for their preferred denomination of spiritual expression or worship. The spiritual program is comprised of various opportunities for innovative ancillary activities while in treatment. Our chaplain, The Rev. Dr. Robin Moore is a certified yoga instructor specifically trained for working with adolescents who have experienced single or multiple traumatic events. Activities in mindfulness, moral development and various forms of creative expression contribute positively to a patient’s well-being and lend to their ability to self-regulate their behaviors.

“I was angry that my grandmother died.
I didn’t know how to deal with the pain.
I tried everything to dull my feelings.
Somehow the people at Jackson-Feild were able to help me se there were better ways to easy my grief and pain.
I am excited to be in an independent living program. I’m looking forward to starting
cosmetology school soon.”
