Treatment Philosophy

Treatment is individualized and must provide individuals and families with a sense of HOPE. Our team approach fosters HOPE by strengthening the individual’s social skills and interpersonal relationships. We develop a clear treatment and transitional plan for our consumers using existing emotional, behavioral and social resources in conjunction with those resources deemed healthy and supportive at home, school, and within the community. Behavioral management techniques along with choices in programming and therapeutic tools are key treatment components encouraging feelings of personal empowerment and responsibility. At SBHS, we look at the whole person, including family, unique life situations, and personal motivation towards hopeful and positive change.
