Long-Term Treatment for Adolescent Males
Our three residential programs offer around-the-clock support for young men, ages 11-17, who exhibit behavioral and mental health issues. Our programs help students learn daily living skills, such as personal hygiene, laundry, cleaning, etc. They also help the students practice the emotional, behavioral and social skills that they are taught in their therapeutic sessions. These skills are taught in the dorms, Monday through Friday for one therapeutic hour. The direct care staff also provides structured groups in the dorms on topics ranging from stress management to problem-solving. Our team monitors the facility 24/7, intervening in negative behaviors, and allowing the student to process his actions and look for alternative solutions therapeutically.
Individual Therapy: Held once a week for a therapeutic hour, the student’s assigned masters-level clinician leads sessions. The sessions focus on those issues identified and agreed upon for the Individual Program Plan.
Group Therapy: Held Monday through Friday, for a therapeutic hour, topics currently include emotion management, therapeutic concepts, victim awareness, and relapse prevention.
Family Therapy: Held twice a month for one therapeutic hour. Sessions are scheduled to be held in conjunction with the individual therapy sessions for a minimum of one therapeutic hour or longer if needed. Led by the student’s assigned masters-level clinician, we will work with the family to schedule these sessions.
Therapeutic Recreation: Students are led by a masters-level clinician through different types of activities to work through team building, trust and problem-solving. These one-hour sessions are held daily on weekdays and twice a day on weekends.
Crisis Stabilization: Available 24 hours a day, our staff is trained to identify when a student may be in a state of crisis. When in crisis, students will be assessed by a member of the clinical team. The determination of that assessment dictates what procedure to follow.
Substance Abuse (Non-Acute)*: We run a general educational group regarding the dangers of drug use. Students who do have a history of drug involvement participate in a psycho-educational group that is held twice a week. If needed, an AOD assessment will be utilized to determine what treatment is necessary. Students are also able to address these issues one-on-one with their therapist.
