The Assessment and Diagnostic Component is a specialty focus treatment modality integrated with overall clinical programming. Assessment and Diagnostic is specifically targeted to at-risk youth who are in need of therapeutic assessments and diagnostic testing to assist in determining the most appropriate clinical placement/program. It can be used on an emergency basis to assist referral sources in determining level of care. This program was developed based on the community’s need for sound clinical evaluation for this purpose. We recognize the importance of this need as necessary to formulate the least restrictive programming to meet the adolescents’ needs.
