Welcome to the Stables

Overlooking the Great Smoky Mountains of Eastern Tennessee, The Stables sits on 25-acres designed for housing, dining, education, groups, multisensory experiences, and a wide variety of recreational and adventure activities. The Stables environment gives individuals a safe, non-institutional setting that allows them to reconnect to nature and animals while experiencing a healthy social engagement.

The serene mountain environment that surrounds Pasadena Villa is the perfect place for a peaceful road to recovery. Our retreat-like setting helps individuals on the autism spectrum to explore the vulnerabilities that interfere with self-awareness, acceptance, and growth, ultimately creating a unique opportunity to develop life strategies and the inner-strength necessary for sustained success. We provide evidence-based therapeutic activities and outdoor experiences that include Cades Cove, Wears Valley Ranch, Little Pigeon River, and the Smoky Mountain National Park that allows individuals to engage in hiking, mountain biking, camping, fishing, and horseback riding.

Why We’re Different

Pasadena Villa Psychiatric Treatment Network has a 20-year history of effectively treating individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Autism Care & Support is an extension of that evidence-based treatment. We use a natural environment to engage individuals in evidence-based activities and strategies, in conjunction with Pasadena Villa’s Social Integration Model™, that allows for an improvement in social functioning. By adopting this model as part of our programming, individuals can develop self-sufficiency, autonomy, enhanced relationships, and communication skills as they identify their strengths and find new opportunities for growth. Autism Care & Support fills the treatment gap as it relates to autism care, by providing that link to those on the spectrum to live independently in the community.
