Residental Treatment


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.

 Our Crisis Respite Program provides temporary housing on campus to provide parents, caregivers and youth time apart during a challenging time.
