90 Day Assessment Program


The Comprehensive Assessment Program (CAP) is a licensed residential program serving clients between the ages of  7-17. It is a time-limited program that provides expert evaluation and treatment of youth who have complex emotional, behavioral, and psychiatric symptoms. This specialized program assists parents, guardians, and other concerned parties in answering critical questions regarding their adolescent, such as understanding their presenting symptoms and determining the best treatment options for success. The CAP program is designed to stabilize clients who may be experiencing significant impairment in their mood or behavioral functioning. Participants receive specialized therapeutic interventions and programming in a highly structured environment.The assessment period for the CAP program is 60-90 days, which will help determine the next level of care needed based upon findings and clinical recommendations made by the clinical team and referral source. After the designated period of evaluation, community partners receive a comprehensive final report, and a special treatment team meeting is held in order to convey assessment findings and determine the next appropriate plan of care for the client.
