Using a therapeutic milieu, we provide a non-regressive experience that emphasizes client responsibility and enables clinicians to support clients in returning to their baseline functioning.

An interdisciplinary approach guides the use of extensive treatment modalities and maximizes the therapeutic potential of all clinicians.

Operating in accordance with our philosophy, we will strive to:

  • Retain the rights and dignity of all clients
  • Provide diagnostic and treatment services
  • Accomplish this work as expeditiously as possible
  • Utilize treatment plans to guide therapeutic experiences that are highly individualized, behaviorally defined, and goal directed
  • Utilize community resources to assist clients in maintaining stability in the community
  • Maximize personal responsibility, preventing regression and maintaining effective function
  • Identify and modify maladaptive behaviors by group, social norms, peer pressure, reality testing, and interpretations
  • Value verbal expression of thoughts and feelings versus acting-out or internalizing such feelings
  • Act as role models for clients to learn from their interactions how to postpone gratification, exert impulse control, and improve interpersonal skills
