Youth Treatment Programs

The Office of Licensing licenses programs that provide a variety of services to minors including: temporary child placement, day treatment, outpatient treatment, residential support, residential treatment, intermediate secure treatment, and outdoor youth programs.
The programs are designed to assist youth in altering non-productive behavior and/or habits.

Our objective is to ensure that a minimum standard of treatment is followed by all programs within the State. Health and safety issues are addressed, and employees of the programs are properly screened to work with youth.

The programs are licensed on an annual basis with periodic visits from a Licensing Specialist to monitor and provide technical assistance and to insure compliance with Core and Categorical Rules of Treatment that govern programs and facilities throughout the State.
