Residential Treatment Programs

There are four residential treatment programs on the Devereux Georgia campus designed to support the needs of youth with emotional and behavioral challenges. Youth are assessed and assigned to one of the campus programs based on age, gender, presenting problems, and developmental level.

  • The Discovery Program serves male and female pre-adolescent youth ages 10-12.
  • The Journey Program serves male youth ages 13-21 with intellectual and developmental disabilities. (IQ range 55-70).
  • The Visions Program serves male and female youth ages 13-21 with the living spaces divided into the younger adolescent group (ages 13-15) and the older adolescent group (ages 16-21).
  • The TRICARE Program serves male and female youth ages 13-21 with the living spaces divided into the younger adolescent group (ages 13-15) and the older adolescent group (ages 16-21).

The therapeutic environment in each of these programs is based on Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS), an evidenced –based model that promotes skill teaching, problem-solving, and rewards for positive, pro-social behavior. Program expectations that are taught and reinforced daily include Being Respectful, Being Responsible, and Using Self-Control.

 

I want to express my gratitude and appreciation to Devereux for the kindness, care and assistance they gave to our daughter while she was in their care. At Devereux, the doctors and nurses worked to find a good combination of medications. In addition, our daughter's therapist worked closely with us and we were very impressed with the ongoing communication with us. I would like to add that our daughter has been out of Devereux for two months and is doing well. Not only is our daughter proud of herself, but we are proud of her. It is with sincere appreciation that we thank everyone at Devereux for giving us back the daughter we once knew.
