Devereux Colorado specializes in providing individualized care for children and adolescents with significant emotional and behavioral needs. We offer intensive residential and day treatment services to youth, ages 12 to 21.

Typically, the individuals we serve are referred to Devereux Colorado after their current placement is disrupted due to aggressive behaviors, running away, self-injurious behaviors/suicidal thoughts or actions, substance abuse problems, thought disorders or sexually inappropriate behaviors. Devereux Colorado provides youth with intensive psychiatric treatment within a highly structured, therapeutic setting.

Individuals admitted to Devereux Colorado must meet the criteria for a DSM-IV diagnosis and have mental health needs that are best served in a residential treatment setting. Each child or adolescent is assessed before being admitted into the residential program.
