Specialty Mental Health Services
For individuals in crisis, intensive, short-term treatment is available at psychiatric hospitals. Acute care can evaluate, diagnose and stabilize acute symptoms following emergency episodes in which individuals may pose a risk to themselves and others.
For individuals in need of 24-hour, out-of-home services, our residential treatment programs provide the resources needed to meet an individual's behavioral health treatment, as well as social and educational goals.
Numerous community-based services and supports provide more independent living options for individuals to reside within their communities, whether in group homes, lifesharing or supported apartments.
These specialized services are designed to meet each individual's treatment needs in the least restrictive environment possible. In addition to outpatient counseling, services may include wrap-around, respite, clinical and educational assessments, family counseling, medication management, and parent and sibling consultations.
Devereux day schools offer high quality, innovative special education programs within a structured environment that prepare students for returning to their local educational communities. Students receive individualized interventions based on their unique needs. Support services and a therapeutic environment enhance the educational, behavioral, emotional, and social development of children and adolescents. Our interventions emphasize Applied Behavior Analysis and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports.
Every child deserves a safe and nurturing environment to give each individual the opportunity for success.

We use a multi-disciplinary team approach that embraces each child's unique potential and emphasizes innovative program development and clinical excellence. Foster care services include intensive clinical intervention, traditional foster care, respite services and case management for children in the foster care system.
