Almost every parent that has admitted their child with us have already exhausted methods of behavior modification such as giving incentives through rewards and punishments or experimentation with psychotropic prescriptions.
The Heart Transformation Therapy (HTT) approach used at CARES Treatment has far greater and lasting results than behavior modification interventions.
Whereas Behavior Modification attempts to create habitual behavior through repetition, repercussion or mind chemistry alteration. Heart transformation results in genuine intent as opposed to behavior modification which fails in its attempt to instill instinctive behaviors which can be easily lost or never attained in the first place.
HTT does not restrict phone calls, video conferences or visitation at all. Parents have 24/7 access to their children instantly. In addition to clinical counseling, family members have access to parent-child coaching for mediation, conflict resolution and relationship building.
At no point will a child be in the same room or house with a peer(s) that may result in a negative experience. CARES Treatment is the only Residential Treatment Home that maintains less than 5 students with a 1:2 caregiver ratio.
