The Barry Robinson Center
Premier Behavioral Health Center for Children
For more than 80 years, The Barry Robinson Center has been improving the lives of children and families. As a premier non-profit behavioral health system, The Center offers a residential treatment program for boys and girls, ages 6-17, with mental health issues, including a dual diagnosis program for teens with substance abuse issues. The Center also offers outpatient substance abuse services for teens, as well as a treatment foster care program.
Children and teens from military-connected families will find a supportive community at The Center. Our treatment programs have been designed to help children and teens from military-connected families find understanding and acceptance, which contributes to their success in treatment. Many of our employees served in the military, and we are committed to training all employees in military lifestyle and culture.
