Norris Residential Program

The Norris Adolescent Center Residential Program

The Norris Residential Program provides treatment, education, and therapy services for clients and their families. Every residential client lives in unit specializing in the specific treatment needed as determined at placement and attends the Norris School. Assessment and diagnosis are part of the on-going evaluation of treatment progress and parent/teacher conferences are held to address school behavior and acheivement. Each residential unit serves 8 - 12 clients in a living unit focused on addressing each individual's needs and family dynamics. We work together mobilizing a therapeutic treatment team that consists of our Psychiatrist, Psychologist, Masters Level Social Worker/Case Manager, experienced Unit Manager, and daily interaction with our experienced youth counselors who all work as a team for each client and family. Youth participate in scheduled therapeutic activities, managed by the treatment team to provide effective, individual growth for each client. Family and youth treatment interventions include individual, group, and family therapy, as well as evaluating and treating psychiatric, psychological and even medical needs as assessed. As determined in evaluation, clients participate in family meetings, make community contacts, participate in therapuetic recreation, educational assessments and school credit recovery.

 There are 4 Residential Units located on our campus

  • The APEX Unit - Mental Health Program
  • The Crossroads Unit - Drug and Alcohol Program
  • The North Star Unit - Sexuality Program
  • The PHAISES Unit - Youth and Family Engaged Therapeutic Program

Positive progress allows clients to advance to the higher level vocational and academic coursework, participate in the work experience program, and routinely reintegrate back to their community in order to build a post-discharge support system. Developing a relationship with each client and family is key to developing their support system. After all, families in crisis need someone that can help them navigate life's difficulties and become a trusted source of information, services and advocacy.
