Overview of Programs & Services

Adolescents with behavioral and emotional problems with severe treatment issues need a structured environment that is safe, secure, and therapeutic. A cognitive/behavioral approach gives youth the tools to be in control, to trust adults, and prepare them for a successful transition back to their families and communities.

We are committed to their growth and success because we believe that offering a pathway to a new beginning provides a second chance for a bright future.

In the 1970’s and 1980’s, the residential, educational and clinical programs were restructured to provide treatment for an aggressive, violent and defiant adolescent population that was both difficult to manage and to place. Stevens quickly developed a reputation for being able to successfully serve and care for youth with complicated treatment issues.

Although the profile of the typical Stevens client has changed, Stevens has been unswerving in its mission to serve youth in need: to provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art treatment to adolescent males of varying needs and cultural backgrounds. Clients become empowered with the skills necessary to rejoin their families and communities with success.

We specialize in working with difficult populations, and we excel at providing a safe, behaviorally controlled setting. Stevens offers treatment approaches that address each youth’s unique needs. Specialization provides a more intensive, consistent, and concentrated approach, improving the quality of treatment and the chances for success.

For the emotionally disturbed, behaviorally disordered youth, treatment begins by providing a safe, staff-secure, predictable, and highly structured therapeutic environment staffed by professionals specially trained to work with this population. Within this nurturing environment, treatment providers manage the youth’s out-of-control behavior, until he can learn to do so for himself. As progress is made, they have the opportunity to transition to the intermediate segment of the program. The intermediate phase of treatment provides youth the opportunity to take more responsibility for themselves and the decisions they make. The final segment of treatment is the Stevens Transitional Living Program (TLP), a community-based program.

The Brayton Learning Center, located on our main campus, offers an educational setting intended to help youth make academic and behavioral progress. Youth receive a customized education that allows them to meet educational requirements and reach their learning potential.

The curriculum is designed to provide innovative instruction associated with the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. It is also designed to accommodate the implementation of students’ Individualized Education Program (IEP).

Additionally, the curriculum is aligned with youths’ clinical goals and is structured to help build social and life skills. Instruction is held in small classrooms with a 1:3 staff to student ratio. The following core subjects are taught:

• English Language Arts
• Mathematics
• History/Social Studies
• Science/Technology
