Treatment Philosophy
The philosophy of the facility is to provide the highest quality treatment-oriented service to residents who will be transitioning to an independent living arrangement or semi-supportive living program. The program is designed to be highly structured through clinically driven groups, individualized instruction, treatment planning, transition planning, and comprehensive skill building training utilizing a hands-on approach.

The Easter Seals residential programs assist youth in becoming as independent and self-reliant as possible. In order to accomplish this, Easter Seals believes in the following principles as related to the resident.

Each resident in the program has:

  • The right to receive needed services, which is advocated by all staff on behalf of the residents whenever necessary.
  • The right to make decisions (or the parent/guardian has the right, as the case may be) regarding the progress of the resident’s program.
  • The right to be involved in the development of their own program.
  • The right to confidentiality, except in life-threatening situations.
  • The right to receive services in a safe, supportive and structured atmosphere.

Residents are active participants in their treatment. There are multiple components, interventions, as well as individual and group counseling applications, designed to help the residents focus on their treatment goals. The program provides the individuals with an experience of practicing skills relating to safety, daily living needs, and community connections/involvements. 

Within 30 days of placement, an assessment is started consisting of a home study, a psychosocial assessment, an identified needs study, independent living assessment and an initial treatment plan. The treatment plan is written with all team members’ input and is designed to meet the specific needs of each resident. Monthly team meetings are held for the first three months of placement and quarterly thereafter. A monthly report and a quarterly educational report are mailed out to all team members.
