Boys Residential

Several county agencies are asking that we offer a less costly residential program to assist in present budget cuts.  In response, Mended Reeds is offering a boys program for only $180 per day.  We have significantly reduced our overheads, enabling us to offer more clinical and residential services at a lower rate.  By relocating our residential program to a smaller facility, we are providing high-quality clinical treatment and 24-hour supervision for boys at a savings.  We are passing the savings on to county agencies in hope that more children can be served during the worst of times. 

This 28-bed program offers more counseling services and a higher staff to resident ratio than any program we have offered previously.  Each resident has a personal therapist, mental health group leader, contracted psychiatrist, med/somatic nurse, and contracted psychologist.  Also, specialists for addictions counseling, sexual abuse, independent living, and much more are available through our community mental health division.

Program Description:

  • Boys: ages 9 to 18 (or up to 20 years old if deemed dependant)
  • Serving the needs of general conduct disorders, including Oppositional Defiant
  • Moderate MRDD is accepted (minimum IQ mid-60s)
