A Message from our Director

Welcome to the Youth Care website, and thank you for taking the time to learn a bit more about our program.

I understand that the decision to enroll your child in a residential program is not an easy one, and I want to personally assure you that we are committed to working with you every step of the way to ensure that you remain informed, engaged, and actively involved in your child’s treatment.

The Youth Care environment is built upon a foundation of mutual respect. Our students are expected to treat staff and peers with respect and in return they can expect to be treated with respect. We believe that teens in crisis are best served in a home-like setting that emphasizes personalized interactions, close supervision and comprehensive professional support.

We place a premium on ensuring that Youth Care remains a safe and supportive place for your child, and we promise to never do less than our absolute best in providing him or her with personalized care that will lead to lasting positive change.

In this supportive therapeutic environment, your son or daughter will benefit from the guidance of caring professionals who know each student as unique individuals with specific strengths, weaknesses, hopes and fears. Each member of the Youth Care staff brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our program. But even more impressive than their many accomplishments and credentials is their dedication to providing the highest quality of care to our students and families.

From the day your child arrives on our campus until long after he or she has completed our program, your entire family will be valued members of the Youth Care family. This vibrant group of parents and professionals is united in the effort to improve the lives of struggling teens and to provide ongoing support to parents and other caregivers.

For specific details about any aspect of our program, please feel free to call us at 800-786-4924 or visit our Contact page.

Thank you again for considering our program for your child. On behalf of the entire Youth Care team, I wish you and your family nothing but the best.
