DN Associates is a non-profit corporation providing for the long-term residential and psychological treatment needs of 11 – 17 year old males. The program utilizes an integrated approach which includes psychotherapy, pharmachological intervention, behavioral management and social skills training, all in a home like setting.
DN Associates provides the highest level of care outside of a hospital setting. We have a capacity for 12 residents at two seperate facilities. We operate with a 2:1 resident to staff ratio during awake hours. Emphasis is on providing a family-like environment which will ultimately result in discharge to a lower level of care.
Residents have the opportunity of earning privileges as they demonstrate increasing responsibility. They attend school on a daily basis and recieve individual and group psychotherapy provided by DN Associates professionals.
In some cases residents graduating from the program will not be returning to their families. DN Associates strives to prepare these young men with the skills necessary for emancipation, job training, or continuing education. DN Associates expectation are that residents completing the program will be able to function in a post-treatment environment. By utilizing all the skills they have developed, we hope they will be contributing members of society.
