Empowering Youth Facing Mental Health Challenges

Holistic Support

Our comprehensive program provides holistic support to adolescents and young adults, addressing emotional, mental, and behavioral challenges. Through personalized care and therapeutic interventions, we empower individuals to overcome obstacles and thrive in their journey towards healing and growth.



Ohio's Premier Residential Therapeutic Program

At the residential level of care, our residents live on-site with 24-hour support and supervision. We treat adolescents and young adults from all contracted counties within the great state of Ohio. Our program offers a level of quality which SCD has committed to endorsing positive choices for our residents through role modeling, skill building, self- respect, and leadership. SCD objective is to provide access to a residential environment; which is safe, nurturing, and supportive of the residents and families that we serve. SCD Residential Therapeutic Program harness the positive power of the family dynamic by creating an environment that look and feel like home. They’re small, serene, and quiet, with never more than five to six residents (depending on location) at a time in any one of our residential locations. Every resident feels like they’re in a personal, individualized location designed to meet their specific therapeutic needs.

Individualized Programs

Our staff approaches residents with cognitive-behavioral, trauma-informed treatment to ensure results. SCD programs consist of positive peer culture driven with the utilization of peer counseling, feedback, and support. These programs are rendered to assist with transition planning and support with family therapy in preparation for reunification. Everything we do is geared toward changing behavior and finding the right combination of treatment and support. Since no two residents are alike, no two treatment plans are alike. During the admissions process, we conduct a thorough assessment, establish a baseline, and create an individual plan based on specific needs and goals.
