River Stones Residential Treatment Inc. is a non-profit organization that provides treatment to challenging and intense teenage boys.
River Stones was founded in 2000 by Executive Director, Russell Rice, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the quaint city Redlands, California at the base of the San Bernardino Mountains.
Mr. Rice has developed a unique and aggressive clinical program that employs Evidence Based Practices to successfully treat the needs of the youth and families.
River Stones is a leader in the field of adolescent treatment and has a unique relational model that many, including judges, researchers, therapists, social workers & parents have referred to as “model program”.
Their commitment is to treat our youth with the most effective treatments available by the most caring people available, and to prepare them for a life of success and independence.
Using relationship as a primary vehicle of change, River Stones blends those theories into a unique model that teaches and promotes pro-social skills, emotional intelligence and moral development.
Staff members on all levels are heavily trained in finding opportunities to teach and model positive social skills, managing one’s own emotions, as well as the emotions of others and to develop a habit of practicing moral and ethical decision making.
