Therapeutic On-Campus Treatment

Applewood Centers provides residential treatment for youth ages 11 to 18 who have a variety of severe mental health needs or have demonstrated self-injurious, risk-taking, and aggressive behaviors. Through a multidisciplinary approach, we work with clients to address each of their individual complex needs—building upon his or her strengths towards recovery. Our team works with the youth on character development and self management while learning leadership development and positive peer culture. Applewood Centers has two programs — Apple Blossom for Girls and Orchard for Boys — that provide the following services:

  • Comprehensive diagnostic assessment
  • Crisis stabilization and intervention
  • Discharge planning and case management that begins at admission
  • Psychiatric consultation, evaluation and medication management
  • Psychological testing
  • Day Treatment
  • Routine medical, dental and optical care
  • Individual, family and group therapy

  • Therapeutic recreation and garden program

  • Specialized educational services

Along with the treatment provided in this program, residents have access to Applewood’s other behavioral health and social service programs including foster care and counseling services. These programs are often used to help transition clients back into the community.

Apple Blossom for Girls

This residential treatment program provides intensive, multi-faceted therapeutic services for girls who have severe emotional and behavioral difficulties. Latency-aged girls are accepted on a case-by-case basis.

These girls are unable to live safely in the community and often have experienced a mixture of acute and long-standing difficulties that have not responded adequately to previous treatment. Initial presenting problems may include developmental delays, aggressive and impulsive behaviors, symptoms of sexual abuse, disturbance of mood, extreme fears, severe relationship difficulties, risk of harm to self or others and school failure.

The Apple Blossom program specializes in the following treatment:

  • Post-traumatic stress and Borderline Personality Disorder Traits
  • Chronic mood, thought, and/or behavior and/or substance abuse disorders
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to address mood instability, interpersonal effectiveness, frustration tolerance, and/or self-harm behaviors
  • Juvenile Justice system issues – use of evidence based practices to address criminogenic or antisocial behaviors and thinking
  • Community re-entry and independent living programming

All treatment and interventions are focused on recovery. The structured living environment builds trusting relationships, encourages respect for self and others, promotes personal growth and responsibility and fosters hope for the future.

Orchard for Boys

Orchard for Boys provides gender specific programming for young men who have been largely unsuccessful in community-based efforts to help build appropriate coping and social skills. Orchard provides an inter-disciplinary team of energetic, creative and dynamic staff committed to the success and well-being of our clients. The clients in Orchard typically have a history of trauma, attachment issues, and behavioral/emotional outbursts. It is our goal to provide exciting and engaging programs to help the boys grow into successful and effective young men.

Orchard for Boys specializes in the following treatment:

  • Post-traumatic Stress and Borderline Personality Disorder Traits
  • Chronic mood, thought, and/or behavior and/or substance use disorders
  • Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) to address mood and thought disorders that impact daily functioning
