Youths with neurobehavioral issues experience loss of control, impulsivity and aggressive behaviors. They usually have prior hospitalizations along with numerous diagnoses and medications (much like behavioral youths). Their behaviors tend to be out of control and not guided by purposeful choice.
Meridell Achievement Center’s adolescent neurobehavioral programs focus on non-confrontation. We steer youths toward what they can do rather than instruct them on what they may not do. We offer three neurobehavioral programs: Eagles (boys ages 11-13), Falcons (boys ages 14-17), Hacienda (girls ages 13-17) and Ravens (girls ages 11-13).
Please read our Neurobehavioral treatment handbook for complete details. Patients are evaluated at intake so they are placed in the appropriate program.
