Residential Treatment Program
Children whose behaviors can no longer be effectively managed in the home, school or community environment are candidates for the Pendleton Child Services Residential Treatment Program. This is a short term, typically 12-16 weeks, behavior modification program. In addition to the regular academic program where the child is expected to complete the assignments from his or her home school, the child participated in a number of group programs, such as anger management, social skills development, character building, music as movement and art as self-expression. Therapeutic assistance is available to the children at the time of the behavior, making the treatment more immediate. Parents and caregivers with children participating in the Program are expected to participate in a weekly Parent Support Group, a six-week parent education program and weekly family therapy sessions.
To begin services a parent must complete a PCSC referral packet and return the completed packet to the center. Parents may print off the form and mail or fax it to the Center, or may send it via e-mail.
