The Private Secured Program is designed to meet the needs of male and female adolescent residents from 6-21 years of age. These residents demonstrate the most severe emotional and behavioral issues needing treatment, and initially require a highly structured and secure setting. Behaviors requiring this setting often include a high level of aggression, suicidal behavior, and AWOL risk.
The Private Secure Program is highly structured in order to address this specific population, and to meet the safety needs of these residents. The treatment program includes:
- Individual Therapy and crisis intervention
- Group Therapy
- Family Therapy
- Consultation and medication management with Board-Certified Child Psychiatrist to monitor mental health status and medication needs
- Psychoeducational Group Learning
- Physical Fitness
- Education is provided through Richmond Community Schools. The school program occurs on the residential unit and is provided by teachers specially trained to teach this population.
