Each residential treatment client is assigned a Case Manager who provides assistance in securing school placement, managing files, contacting CASA and educational advocates, HIPPA compliance, Medicaid Review and a multitude of other tasks. Our nurse provides health and safety training for all direct care team members and treatment of youth for minor health issues. We collaborate with other community based agencies to help provide holistic care. When a youth comes into our care, we initiate a service plan that assesses and lays out goals based on the individualized needs of the youth and his family.
To do this, we take a holistic approach to treatment for each client. We work closely with a wide variety of professionals, medical specialists and the resident’s family or guardian to develop a comprehensive treatment plan within the first 30 days. We use Ohio Scales and Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) as measurement tools, with input from our clinician, program director, case manager and residential staff, as well as DCYF, educational providers, psychiatric providers, probation and the court system to ensure we provide the best care possible.
Each client is provided with one hour of individual therapy by our clinician per week, family therapy (when appropriate) and one hour of group therapy by our clinician each week. Clinical times can increase based on a client’s need.
We recognize that the youth and families we serve have suffered trauma and sometimes that results in the youth being temporarily separated from his family. To further help guide our treatment, Turning The Corner has also incorporated the Attachment, Self-Regulation and Competency (ARC) treatment model into all of its programming, which allows us to create an effective framework for intervention for youth and families.
