Our residential treatment program in an open program setting. We treat young people with emotional, behavioral and psychiatric problems, building on kids’ strengths and guiding them toward higher levels of functioning. The goal of treatment is to enable children to maintain stable relationships in a family setting.
Boys and girls live in homes separated by age, and in most cases, have single bedrooms that reflect their unique tastes and personalities. Teens receive intensive individual therapy, group therapy and family therapy based on their individualized treatment needs and goals.
Each home has a licensed therapist trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing with specialized training in anxiety, depression, substance abuse and sensory integration. The therapist-to-child child ratio is 1:10.
