Comprehensive Programming

Recognizing that each child who is entrusted into our care has his or her own unique set of needs, concerns, strengths, and skillsets, we feel strongly that all treatment plans should be fully customized to ensure that all children receive the well-rounded care that they deserve.

In order to determine what the most appropriate plan of treatment should be, all children and families will be provided with a thorough evaluation in order to identify the specific needs and concerns that should be addressed throughout the child’s time in treatment. During this evaluation, it will also be determined which level of care will most appropriately help the child achieve his or her treatment goals.

The levels of care that we offer include:

  • Day treatment
  • Outpatient treatment
  • School-based treatment
