The facility provides educational and medical services, individual and group counseling, recreational activities and religious services. In addition, the facility provides seasonal/holiday celebrations, special guest speakers, recreational tournaments, special resident/staff luncheons, and a positive behavior- incentive program. Families are able to visit with their child and have access to our treatment team and we encourage family therapy when appropriate.
