Residential Program

The Residential Treatment Center, a TRICARE®-certified program, serves adolescent boys and girls, ages 11–17, who demonstrate a persistent pattern of severe emotional
and/or behavioral issues that are disruptive, frequent and cannot be treated in a lesser level of care.

We provide intensive treatment in a structured, therapeutic environment as well as:

  • Gender-specific programs
  • Individual therapy three times a week
  • Psychiatric visits twice a week
  • Family therapy weekly
  • 12-month licensed school
  • Substance abuse education
  • Life skills, social skills and leisure education groups
  • Psych-educational and process groups
  • Supervised therapeutic community outings
  • Special-issue groups focusing on anger management, grief and loss, discharge readiness, trauma, self-injury and children of military parents

Residential Life

Our secure campus allows the opportunity for our residents to walk daily to their education classes, treatment groups and cafeteria-style dining. The adolescents embrace the fresh air, openness and peaceful surroundings. Our living areas and bedrooms are spacious and decorated to personalize the adolescents’ experience during their journey to healthier living.

Personalized Learning

Our team of professionals brings experience in child/adolescent psychiatry, social work, nursing, chemical dependency treatment, special education and activity/recreational therapies. The team, along with the resident and their support systems, creates a personalized treatment plan that emphasizes individuals’ strengths, challenges, preferences and learning styles.

We begin immediately with a thorough and accurate assessment. Treatment programs help adolescents achieve the specific goals and objectives identified as most crucial to their success. Our broad range of clinical services includes:

  • Psychiatric visits twice a week
  • Individual therapy three times a week
  • Family therapy weekly

All residents attend the Learning Center, our private, 12-month school licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Philosophy

Our philosophy is that at-risk youth are entitled to safe, secure, clinically sound treatment in the least restrictive setting. We value the importance of matching the resident’s needs with the appropriate level and type of treatment, care, or services and the integration of these services throughout our facility and within the community.
