AK Child & Family Residential Treatment is here to assist youth with emotional and behavioral diagnoses who need a highly structured environment and 24-hour supervision.
Our residential treatment program is housed on two campuses – Jesse Lee Campus and Maplewood Campus. There are seven cottages and the ages / genders served are contingent upon the needs of the youth in the community.
Families and youth play an integral role in establishing treatment direction. This process actually starts during pre-admission when intake therapists discuss with the guardian / youth the reason for referral and desired treatment outcomes. An initial plan of care is created that addresses orientation to the program, student rights, safety planning and participation in the therapeutic process. Within fourteen days of admission and based upon a comprehensive assessment, an interdisciplinary team will develop an individualized treatment plan that addresses presenting issues and establishes goals. The treatment team includes the youth, a variety of people who are important in the youth’s life and the AK Child & Family treatment professionals who provide care.
