SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — InnerChange, a clinical and operational consulting organization supporting residential treatment centers, today announced a new partnership with the Oakley School, a college preparatory therapeutic boarding school for students located in Oakley, Utah.
The Oakley School offers a robust academic curriculum, professional clinical services and rich experiential programming for male and female students ages 14-18. The school specializes in treatment for adolescents and young adults with emotional and behavioral problems.
Oakley School founder and Executive Director James Meyer will be leaving the school to lead another prominent program. Meyer is pleased and excited about Oakley’s new InnerChange partnership. “I have known the leaders of InnerChange for many years and I am confident that they will be a fabulous partner to ensure Oakley’s success for years to come,” Meyer says. “They place the needs of students and families first – which is the best way to preserve Oakley’s legacy and mission.”
Paul Taylor, a close colleague of Meyer’s and former director of another western state therapeutic boarding school will be the school’s new executive director. “I have camped and hiked often in the Oakley area. I have always had an affinity for this beautiful part of Utah. I can’t wait to join the exceptional people at Oakley and build on the strong foundation that James and the faculty have laid,” said Taylor.
“Our company’s mission is to help leading programs facilitate lasting change in the lives of young people and their families,” says InnerChange Chief Clinical Officer Dustin Tibbits. “Partnering with Oakley, which is not only an outstanding school but also our first coed program, is an exciting step in expanding InnerChange’s breadth of services.”
