The Adirondack Youth Lodge is a 24-hour, 8-bed community residence serving youth who have serious and persistent symptoms caused by a designated mental illness diagnosis. The program is certified by the Office of Mental Health and provides local treatment options for at-risk males and females (ages 12-18). Youth and their families are engaged in improving their relationships by being provided with intensive services, both in and out of the home. Restorative interventions are tailored to meet the child “where they’re at,” while remaining focused on empowering their entire network of support. Some services provided are behavior support, educational/vocational support, family support, health services and medication management.

How to apply:

Please submit a Franklin County SPOA (Single Point of Access) referral. The SPOA is designed to coordinate the broad ranges of mental health services available locally to ensure the right service is connected to the right children and their families at the right time. Once completed, the referral is returned to the individual listed in the actual application.
