Alternative to Detention

This 3–4 month program is designed to divert juveniles who have committed delinquent acts from being handled in a judicial manner.  This program is appropriate for male or female youth with mild mental health symptoms.  During their stay, residents will participate in therapeutic and educational services.  Families are encouraged to participate in the program’s counseling services to aid in the smooth transition of a resident back into the community.  This program blends the strength-based group approach with reality therapy.  Length of stay is determined by individual service plans.
