Our Residential Programs for Children & Teens
Hermitage Hall is a residential treatment facility that focuses on the needs of young people who’ve experienced severe trauma and are exhibiting reactive behaviors as a result. Our facility provides specialized treatment to residents at this crucial time, offer targeted care from a staff of therapists, psychiatrists, clinicians and more, who are trained to work with this sensitive population. We offer 24-hour nursing care, around-the-clock supervision and comprehensive support for youth and their families as they seek out a new beginning.
When young people enter most residential treatment facilities due to behavioral and emotional instabilities, the focus is placed solely on the remediation of these behaviors as the goal of treatment. At Hermitage Hall, we view these behaviors as symptoms of underlying emotional issues. Trauma Informed Care provides an environment and specialized services that are responsive to the unique needs of trauma survivors. Emphasis is placed on “what has happened to the child” rather than “what is wrong with the child.” A deep understanding of survivors and their symptoms in the context of their life experiences guides our practices and helps staff and patients find a clearer path toward rehabilitation, healing and growth.
As a residential facility for youth, education is paramount to the success of our programs. Our education department has set a standard by being the only facility that provides a computer keyboard for each resident via the Renaissance Learning System. Hermitage Hall sets itself apart educationally by offering learning modules that adapt to the youth’s specific learning abilities and functional level. We offer a wide range of education opportunities for our residents, including GED prep coursework, vocational training, Special Education for students with different learning abilities, and so much more.
CO-OCCURING ADDICTION TREATMENT
We understand that emotional and behavioral issues can sometimes lead to substance abuse issues, especially when dealing with the emotional weight of past trauma. We offer drug and alcohol counseling for patients who are battling addiction issues when they enter our facility.
