Residential Service

Treatment for youth up to age 21 who are referred to Vanderheyden.

Youth are referred to Vanderheyden for Residential Treatment through various sources: schools, courts, county agencies, and parents.  Some youth are deemed appropriate for placement upon referral, and are admitted into the site deemed most appropriate:

  • Seven cottages on our campus are home to the youth in our care. 
  • Two off-campus group homes also serve youth age 12-21. 
  • Youth 18-21 have the opportunity to live in apartments while being provided 24/7 staffing support.

 When there is a question by a referring party as to what treatment plan is appropriate for a youth, Diagnostic Services provides a thirty-day on-campus clinical assessment of the youth’s needs.  The referral source then receives the results of this assessment and determines appropriate placement of the youth, either at Vanderheyden, or elsewhere.
