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) and Jewels (girls ages 11-17).
Please read our residential neurobehavioral treatment handbook for complete details on these programs. All adolescents undergo evaluations during intake to determine the program best suited for them. Our on-campus charter school ensures patients’ educations are uninterrupted by treatment.
