(H.I.P.)

Mission

To provide a safe and therapeutic environment within a residential program for court-adjudicated youth, ages 12-18, who are in need of intensive intervention to reduce the risk of long-term placement and to decrease reoccurring incidents of maladaptive community behavior. The duration of this program is anywhere from 90 to 120 days. Assement includes an individual service plan, a court accountability plan, educational needs, the parent-child relationship, and parenting skills.
