Our Horizons Program offers an intensive level of care to adolescent females, ages 13 to 17, who are dually diagnosed with a mental health disorder and an intellectual or developmental disability. Horizons is intended to treat young girls with an IQ between 55 and 69.
The program provides stabilization and 24-hour supervision for female adolescents who exhibit significant problems with under-socialization, oppositional behaviors (which may include moderate aggression) or emotional struggles. Treatment aims to resolve residents’ problematic and self-defeating behaviors and reinforce concrete positive behaviors.
Referrals for 11- and 12-year-olds are considered based on individual treatment needs and the ability to adequately serve those needs.
