Not in Your Area?

For intensive in-home treatment, our counselors must be based close enough to a child’s home to make regular visits and be readily available to the child and his or her family. See map to learn more.

  • We accept children into our residential treatment programs from many different areas of the country. If contracts are in place, funding is provided by state Medicaid. Otherwise single-case agreements are developed with state, county or municipal governments, a board of education, etc.
  • If you are a referring professional interested in our residential services, please inquire here.
