The University Behavioral Center’s residential treatment program is an “intense, highly structured clinical program” that uses a behaviorally directed point system, in conjunction with group, individual and family therapies. Services are designed for males and females, ages 13-17, who have an AXIS I diagnosis, with one or more of the following problems: poor impulse control and high risk behavior, including aggression; suicidal intent/ideation and self harm; impairment in maintaining themselves without structure; mild to severe impairment in cognitive and perceptual functions, judgment and problem solving; present disturbances in age appropriate adaptive and interpersonal functioning. They may also have complicating learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD, and/or mood disorders in addition to conduct problems.

Clients learn to deal with medication issues, anger management, issues with grief and loss, chemical dependency, social skills development, trauma, stress management and life skills, male/female issues, and or sexual abuse issues.

Treatment at University Behavioral Center is provided by a ‘culturally competent,’ interdisciplinary team including a Board Certified Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, Licensed Mental Health Counselors, a Licensed Social Worker, Registered Nurses, Mental Health Technicians, Recreational Therapists, Special Ed. Teachers and Certified Addiction Professionals.

Activities, schedules and groups within the program change to meet the varying needs of the residents. All residents are involved in individual and family therapy. Additionally, the following components are a part of most residents’ care: community meetings, parent support, creative arts therapy, school recreational therapy, ROPES, and specialty groups.
