Specialized Treatment Facility

Full Description


Specialized Treatment Facility employs Milieu Therapy as the foundation for the treatment of its residents. Milieu Therapy is a planned treatment environment in which everyday events and interactions are therapeutically designed for the purpose of enhancing social skills and building confidence. This therapy uses common structures familiar to all children, such as daily routines, consistent rules and activities.

Psychotherapy is conducted by evidenced-based or best-practice models. STF currently uses:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Trauma Focused – Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT)
  • Structured Psychotherapy for Adolescents Responding to Chronic Stress (SPARCS)
  • Alcohol and Drug Treatment/Prevention – The Matrix Model for Teens

Residents participate in individual, group, and family therapy sessions, recreational activities (physical education and arts and crafts) and attend classes at the facility’s on-site school. Residents are also expected to work on developing positive life skills such as maintaining a clean living environment. The Facility strives to maintain a safe and positive living environment in which residents can grow and learn
