Residential Treatment

About the Program:

The Residential Treatment Program supports an 8-bed secure unit which houses coed youth that range from 12 to 17 years of age that have been court-ordered into the program.

The purpose of the Eaton County Youth Facility Residential Treatment Program is to provide trauma-informed rehabilitative services for youth who have been adjudicated delinquent, and deemed in need of services by the Juvenile Division of the Eaton County Family Court.

It is the goal of the Residential Treatment Program to rehabilitate each youth using intensive evidence-based treatment to such an extent that they develop the skills necessary to lead more productive and positive lives.

 As youth progress through the five levels, they are expected to assume additional responsibilities within the program, at home and in the community.
