Intensive Psychiatric Treatment for Males
The Residential Treatment Program at Alabama Clinical Schools provides treatment for adolescent males, ages 9 to 18, who are displaying sexually reactive behaviors. This psychiatric treatment program utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) to help young men change thinking patterns, emotions, and behavioral responses to interrupt poor behavioral patterns. Program participants must have a mental health diagnosis and an IQ of 60 or greater.
Our staff combines several therapy modalities to address both behavioral, social and psychiatric needs of the young men in our program. 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 and prevent sexually reactive behaviors in the future.
Year-round schooling is an integral part of the residential treatment program at Alabama Clinical Schools. We offer onsite education with special education teachers who provide students with appropriate accommodations that meet their specific needs and academic goals. Traditional classroom models are combined with recreational therapy and vocational training to provide a holistic experience for each student in our care.
