The Pathways

The following pathways are intended to individualize the residents’ mental health treatment. These pathways will assist in moving residents to recovery and prepare them to transition into the Partial Pathways, a less restrictive environment.

Upon admission to a program, residents will participate in a series of groups which are specific to their needs:

Pathway to Recovery:  Focuses on adolescents with addictive behaviors.

Pathway to Understanding:  Focuses on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques, to include Trauma Focused CBT.

Pathway to Self Awareness:  Focuses on self esteem building, gender issues, identity issues.

Pathway to Independence:  Focuses on establishing basic skills for that age range, whether it’s how to make a bed, complete hygiene, or how to complete a resume or job application.  This pathway may also include off campus activities to prepare a resident for their future.

Pathway to Growing Up:  Focuses on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Kids/Teens, social skills, and developing the leader in themselves.

Pathway to Self Control:  Focuses on conflict resolution skills through use of psychodrama.
