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.
Parent support services
Parent support services specialize in helping parents who are struggling with a child diagnosed with a behavioral health condition. Examples include a child who has been diagnosed with ADHD, ODD, Conduct Disorder, Bipolar Disorder or other behavioral issues.
The program provides short-term intensive in-home intervention. The program is led by a licensed therapist who has received education for Parent Management Training.
What to expect:
- Initially, there is a screening/interview process with the family prior to acceptance into the program.
- Families should expect to be actively involved in the process and ready to accept parenting guidance.
- After identifying the areas where families can make improvements, a Parent Support Case Manager will help come up with objectives and strategies to use over the next six months.
- An individualized support plan unique to each family is developed. This plan contains specific interventions and strategies for each family to use. Parent Management Training employs techniques for influencing positive behavior.
- Every two weeks the plan is reviewed, and if needed, revised by the family, case manager and coordinator.
Each family’s progress is measured on a regular basis, with the intent of achieving individual objectives by the end of the six month program.
