Residential Care and Treatment
Residential Care and Treatment at Turning Point Youth Services is provided through a strengths based and client centered approach designed to create individualized case management, or treatment plans, that respect diversity of race, culture, religion and sexuality. Interventions are relationship based and use a variety of treatment modalities such as narrative, solution focused and cognitive behavioural, to achieve positive outcomes for youth involved in the programs.
All efforts are made to involve parents and guardians in the treatment and planning decisions during the youth's stay in our residential programs. All youth attend school in the community, an alternative educational program, or are involved in employment preparation and readiness programming.
The programs are staffed by a team of child and youth workers and treatment services are augmented by staff from our clinical and counselling team and supported by access to psychiatric and psychological consultation and assessment.
