Our comprehensive services are designed to meet the equally comprehensive range of social, emotional, behavioral, developmental and educational needs of the youth, to achieve our mission of rehabilitation. SJJS utilizes the Forward Focused Treatment Model©, the first empirically-guided clinical treatment program developed specifically for adolescents with serious offending behaviors. The model uses evidence-based practices including cognitive behavioral therapy and trauma-focused interventions, based on adolescent brain development research.
Treatment is guided by a developmentally-informed conceptualization of the youth’s risks and needs, and utilizes a multi-modal and multi-pronged approach to treatment, and includes the treatment of co-occurring trauma & substance use disorders. Additional modalities are incorporated to establish individualized goals, through person-centered planning. Each youth’s length of treatment and subsequent release from the program is based on each youth’s previous life experience, world view, behavioral problems, learning ability and individual motivation to change.
Treatment is specifically designed to prevent recurring involvement with the legal system, promote prosocial development, and promote long-term successful life outcomes. Therapeutic services for each youth include weekly individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy and additional trauma-focused services.
