In some instances the Court may order that your child be removed from your care and placed in a short term residential treatment program to provide specialized services. Each youth placed in an out-of-home program is provided a treatment plan. Parents, the committing Judge and the Deputy Probation Officer receive reports every six months regarding the youth's progress toward meeting their treatment plan goals. The progress reports include areas of progress, areas needing improvement, medical issues, behavioral health issues and education progress and status. Monthly visits with the youth and their family are encouraged as is participation in a family component of treatment. Communication and participation may be via phone, video conferencing (or some form of video) or in-person. Please contact your child’s assigned Deputy Probation Officer for additional information.
