Our Residential Program specializes in the treatment of youth ages 6-18. We strive to create a healthy family atmosphere in co-ed homes that prepare children for pre-adoptive homes or to return to rehabilitated families. This program focuses on healing past trauma, developing a healthy identity, learning independent living skills, and preparing youth for permanent placements.
Licensed master’s level therapists work with each child individually. They provide pre-placement family therapy when appropriate. Our therapists have specialized trainings in play and art therapy, trauma informed treatment, reactive attachment disorder, substance abuse treatment, seeking safety, motivational interviewing, TF-CBT, and work effectively with sexually reactive children.
