New Perspectives - Apr, 1992 Issue 

San Pablo & St. Paul's Academy
(602) 956-9090
Phoenix, Arizona
By Lowell E. Andrews, President & CEO
Hal Elliott, Vice President & Program Director

As San Pablo Treatment Center celebrates its 30th Anniversary, the respected residential facility for boys 12 to 17 has expanded to include a day treatment program. The not-for-profit, fully accredited adolescent treatment center has added a separate campus for St. Paul's Academy which provides academic remediation and behavioral and emotional counseling.

"We recognized the need for a specialized program that would address the needs of young men who need a more intensive academic and therapeutic environment than is available through traditional channels," said Lowell E. Andrews, President and CEO. "Many school districts are not able to provide for the special education and counseling needs of their students. St Paul's Academy offers them a less costly alternative to hiring staff and developing facilities for one or two students. The new program extends San Pablo's continuum of care and opens alternatives to better tailor programs for individuals who are covered by managed mental health plans," he added. By moving the classroom facilities to a separate campus, San Pablo was able to expand its residential facilities to 36 beds.

San Pablo residents attend classes, counseling and some therapy sessions at St. Paul's Academy. The new campus includes administrative and clinical offices, kitchen and dining hall, seven classrooms, a dispensary and athletic field facilities. San Pablo is recognized nationally for its comprehensive treatment programs. San Pablo addresses all areas of dysfunction - personal, social, educational and family - in an environment that fosters positive change. Both San Pablo and St. Paul's provide a highly structured, highly disciplined environment of positive incentives and therapy designed to restore self worth. Together San Pablo and St. Paul's accommodate up to 60 young men with a staff of 120 clinical professionals, trained child care providers and teachers.
