For teenage boys who have broken the law, Eckerd Kids short-term juvenile justice residential program offers rehabilitative services to help youths change their behavior by building on their strengths. The intensive four to six months program is available to boys ages 13-17.
Intensive, short-term services include individualized treatment and academic plans that combine formal and experiential education, vocational education, community service, behavioral health and family counseling in a non-punitive environment designed to address the youth’s behavioral challenges through a strength-based approach. Youth also receive accredited education on-site and work together in small group settings with assigned counselors.
As part of a public-private partnership with the North Carolina Division of Juvenile Justice, the program also puts an emphasis on family transition planning and support.
