Our programming is separated into four unique phases:  

  • The “identify” phase: During this phase, adolescents and young adults work with staff members to understand why they are receiving services at our facility. 
  • The “connect” phase: We introduce learning new skills and help residents understand how to put those skills into action. 
  • The “demonstrate” phase: During this phase, residents begin to implement and practice the skills they have learned. 
  • The “distribute” phase: Residents give back to the community by taking part in prosocial activities, during which they can utilize the new skills they have developed. 

It’s important to us that our residents feel at ease during their stay so that they can fully focus on healing. For this reason, we strive to provide them with a warm and welcoming environment where they can escape the stressors of their daily routines and enjoy all the comforts of home.
