From the first day of treatment, we are planning for the residents’ discharge back home to the family, community and school. We work to make sure that transition is smooth and that parents are ready. We also plan the next steps after a discharge and follow-up to make sure all of our residents continue to receive the support and resources they need.
As part of its residential treatment, The Barry Robinson Center offers a Dual Diagnosis Program for adolescents with mental health and substance use illnesses. This innovative program features a comprehensive treatment approach designed to promote recovery from substance use and prevent relapse while also treating the co-existing mental health issues.
Our Children’s Program provides a structured, supportive setting for younger boys, starting with age 6, to address issues of attachment, hyperactivity, aggression, out-of-control and self-destructive behaviors, depression, trauma, abuse, as well as school and socialization issues.
Older residents often have complicated histories and more than one psychiatric diagnosis including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, mood disorders, and ADHD. They may have turned to self-harm to cope or may have suicidal thoughts.
