Woodlands Live-In Treatment

Kids Having Fun In Art Class

The Woodlands Live-In Treatment program is a therapeutic service for youth between 12 years of age and up to their 18th birthday who are experiencing significant mental health, emotional and behavioural difficulties. The five day live-in program combines a family-based treatment model and a supportive school environment with therapeutic and skills training activities designed to foster normal adolescent growth, healthy family relationships and achieve treatment goals. The program operates 24 hours a day, Monday to Friday within a home-like environment where youth follow house rules and participate in structured groups, recreational activities and chores.

Using a client-focused, strengths-based approach, we provide:

  • Individual, family and group counselling based on treatment goals
  • Individualized school program and the opportunity to attain credits
  • Milieu treatment (social responsibility, life skills, emotion management, positive peer interactions and self esteem)
  • Health education and assessment
  • Recreational activities (gym, swimming and community outings)
  • Home and community reintegration support
  • Crisis support
  • Health consultations, teaching and support
  • Assessments, as required

Each youth and family is assigned their own Primary Worker and Clinician who work collaboratively to develop individual treatment goals. Our multidisciplinary team then supports the youth and family in achieving these goals in collaboration with the youth, family and community partners, if required. The Woodlands treatment team includes:

  • Program Manager and Supervisor
  • Child and Youth Counsellors
  • Clinician
  • Psychologist
  • Teacher
  • Nurse Therapist
  • Music Therapist
  • Recreation Therapist
  • School Transition Worker
  • Psychiatric services are arranged with local medical professionals as required.
