Residential Treatment:

Residential Treatment Program
Our Residential Treatment Program provides a safe, accepting and supportive environment for children who are experiencing serious emotional, behavioural and/or relationship difficulties.


Who is eligible for our services?
Typically, our residential services are for children

  • who are between 7 to 17 years of age,
  • who are at risk of losing their place in the home,
  • who have moderate-to-severe levels of impairment at home and in the community or in their relationships, moods, or emotions,
  • whose caregivers live in the Region of Peel or Dufferin County,
  • whose families or guardians have multiple stressors, impacting their ability to successfully parent their child or youth, and
  • whose families or guardians will support and participate in developing, implementing and revising their child's treatment plan.


What do we do?
We offer families temporary residential treatment

  • to re-energize,
  • to broaden their repertoire of choices,
  • to work towards improving their relationships with their children or youth, and
  • to prepare for their child's return to the community.


Our multi-disciplinary teams offer treatment for children and their families that builds on their strengths

  • to help them learn and practice new skills,
  • to foster understanding of others, and
  • to achieve the goals that are important to them.


We encourage families to be active partners throughout the treatment process.


During the final transitional phase to the community, we provide support and resources to help the child/youth and his or her family consolidate their gains.


The length of treatment depends on the probable benefit from continued service at any given time. We monitor each child's progress on a regular basis, to acknowledge accomplishments and to plan future directions.
