Residential Programs

Individual treatment in a safe, supportive environment.

Sometimes, outpatient treatment isn’t enough. That’s where Youth Villages comes in.

At our residential campuses, we give children and youth a safe, supportive environment to heal and move forward. Our integrated, evidence-based therapy treats serious emotional and behavioral problems in young people, as well as co-occurring disorders.

Residential Programs

Committed to bringing families together

At Youth Villages, we believe that all children should be raised by their families whenever possible. There are times when residential care can’t be avoided, but we strive to make these stays as short as possible.

When family reunification is possible, we begin family counseling and therapy. Our campuses provide a family-friendly atmosphere with plenty of family therapy and visitation rooms, as well as outdoor areas for visits and picnics.

Residential Programs

Our treatment is designed around children with specific needs.

Youth we treat include the following:

  • Youth with intellectual disability (IQ 50 or above)
  • Boys and girls with problem sexual behaviors
  • Youth with emotional disturbance and co-occurring medical conditions
  • Youth that present with extreme aggressive or defiant behaviors
Residential Programs

Our Process

Our ultimate goal is to return children to a less restrictive environment—preferably intensive in-home services with their family. If this isn’t possible, we accomplish this through therapeutic foster care.

Youth Villages is accredited by The Joint Commission and uses evidence-informed practices across all aspects of programming.

Our personalized therapeutic approach allows us to meet the unique treatment needs of everyone we serve, which includes:

  • Evidentiary Family Restoration®
  • Group, individual and family therapy with master’s-level counselors
  • A 5:1 staff ratio
  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) when indicated
  • Recreation therapist programming at our campus locations
  • On-campus education services
  • Nursing staff that are available for medical needs that may arise
  • Face-to-face psychiatric consultation monthly, at minimum
  • Life skills groups to assist in skill building and preparation to live independently as an adult

 

In addition, all Youth Villages residential treatment center staff are certified and trained in the following:

  • American Heart Association Heartsaver® First Aid CPR AED
  • Crisis Prevention Institute Nonviolent Crisis Intervention®
  • Think:Kids Collaborative Problem Solving® (CPS)

*All masters-level clinical staff are TF-CBT trained.

The Force For Families®

CAMPUS LIFE

Children are grouped by gender, age, diagnosis and functioning level. Ten to 12 members of each group live in the same cottage and spend all day together—attending class, eating meals and participating in activities as a group.

Each cottage includes a community room, bedrooms, bathrooms, showers, a kitchen, laundry room, and an office for the counselors. All bedrooms are equipped with bunk beds, armoires and sinks.

Group counseling, life skills activities, homework and free time all take place in a cottage community room during afternoons and weekends. There is also plenty of outdoor space for cooking out and picnics. Outdoor “ready areas” provide a nice spot for group activities, as well.
