Short-Term Residential Therapeutic Programs
The Short-Term Residential Therapeutic Programs serve adolescent young men who have been placed by county probation departments. Although placed through probation, the behaviors these youth have displayed are typically in response to, and the result of, a history of trauma, abuse, neglect or abandonment. The young men often develop emotional and behavioral challenges. These factors then manifest into behaviors that require intensive, short-term residential treatment in order to mitigate identified mental health issues, change behavioral patterns and reduce recidivism.
Appropriate Adolescent Behavior Program
This short-term residential therapeutic program provides therapeutic treatment services to English and Spanish speaking adolescent males, 12 to 18 years of age, and non-minor dependents who are referred from the juvenile courts/probation. The youth are placed to address their identified treatment issues, but they may also have substance abuse/dependency problems, anger management problems, and personal victimization issues. Depending on any additional issues a youth may have, the programs may also provide services addressing gender identity issues, victims of abuse/neglect, some medical problems, psychotropic medication, special education, and oppositional defiance.
