The Residential Treatment Program provides psychiatric treatment for adolescent males, ages 9 to 18, who are displaying sexually reactive behaviors. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) help young men change thinking patterns, emotions, and behavioral responses to interrupt poor behavioral patterns.

The RISE program is designed to help males ages 13 to 18 who are struggling with severe mental illness after multiple unsuccessful attempts, early discharges, or denied admission to other programs. Masters-level therapists and psychiatrists use individual and group therapy sessions to help the boys in the program identify personal triggers that enable offense cycles, and develop new strategies and coping mechanisms to build self-control.

Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC) is a community-based program that provides interventions to boys and girls in state custody and unable to live at home due to behavioral and mental health issues. Our foster care caseworkers and parents work to deliver mental health treatment services in a therapeutic foster home environment while collaborating with the child, their family, and the Alabama Department of Human Resources (DHR) to meet the child’s individual treatment needs.

The Specialized Treatment Foster Care (STFC) Program provides intensive therapy to sexually reactive boys within the context of a foster home living arrangement. Boys in this program may exhibit inappropriate sexual behaviors or display inappropriate knowledge of sexuality for their age. Boys are placed in single-occupancy foster care homes but receive the same kind of intensive therapy provided in our residential treatment programs.
