Villa Santa Maria is a residential community specializing in the clinical treatment of children and families of children who are suffering from attachment disorders. Nestled in the high desert of the Sandia Mountains, just fifteen minutes from Albuquerque, our serene campus is an ideal therapeutic setting.

The staff at Villa Santa Maria hold the philosophy that the core of effective treatment is based on child centered and family focused intervention and support. It is our belief that all aspects of the child and family's involvement with the Villa provide an opportunity for therapeutic intervention, positive interaction, role modeling and effective parenting. Our clinical model is deeply rooted in attachment theory, and emphasizes trust and relationships, not just behavioral issues.

Villa Santa Maria is a private, not for profit organization with no religious affiliation.
