The new Synergy program provides short term general psychiatric and behavioral health treatment services for male adolescents ages 12 to 21 with an Axis I and/or Axis II psychiatric disorder.
Services are delivered in a residential setting, with awake supervision 24 hours a day. The approach to assessment and treatment of adolescents is an individualized psychological and developmental perspective. A unique aspect to this program is the independent living skills pathway where residents learn basic life and care skills to prepare for independence in the near future.
A major goal for treatment is to move the adolescent toward significant improvement in order to return to a less restrictive environment when discharged. Upon discharge, we encourage placement into our Partial Pathways program to assist with transition and reinforce learned skills.
