Behavioral Program

Behavioral Program

Youths with behavioral issues tend to act manipulatively and with purpose. They often have prior hospitalizations and multiple diagnoses and medications (much like neurobehavioral youths). Although their behaviors are purposeful and controlled, they usually struggle due to peer pressure and poor decision-making.

Meridell Achievement Center’s residential behavioral programs give these adolescents the opportunity to understand their patterns of thinking and behaving. We offer four behavioral programs: La Casa for boys ages 13-17, and Bunk House, Ranch House and Hacienda for girls ages 13-17.

Please read our boys’ and girls’ residential behavioral treatment handbooks for complete details on these programs. Patients are evaluated at intake so they are placed in the appropriate program, and their educations continue through our on-campus charter school.
