Parents and families are a vital part of treatment here, and they are invited to all meetings that take place regarding your child. You as a parent will receive updated copies of the treatment plan monthly. Also, each child and their parents have scheduled time with their treating psychiatrist monthly and more often as needed or requested.
Your involvement ideally includes phone calls, participation in family therapy, and visits. We do not have set days/times for visiting because every family is different and we will work with the families to identify the time that best meets their schedule. The family is also welcome to use the on-campus apartment to practice for a weekend with staff available.
It is our ultimate goal for the child to practice the skills learned here in their home to assist with transference of skills.
We regularly survey the parents of our residents to find out how we’re doing.
Our most recent survey shows that the majority of parents (85%) find our staff to be welcoming and equally importantly, 94% feel that they are treated with respect.
