Residential Services

Adelphoi’s residential programs provide individual attention by trained professionals in a caring and respectful home-like environment.

Benefits

  • A full-time Board Certified Psychiatrist provides initial psychiatric evaluations to all youth needing mental health support.
  • Recreation is an integral part of the treatment program for youth and includes weekly physical education classes, as well as regular recreation through outdoor play, intramural sports and outdoor excursions.
  • Balanced and Restorative Justice (BARJ) principles are incorporated into programs, emphasizing community service projects, restitution payments, competency development, and victim restoration.
  • Our Continuum of Care model offers a broad spectrum of services ranging from the least restrictive (in-home services) through the most restrictive (secure treatment). This allows youth to move from one program to another in a way that will help ensure success with a minimal amount of transitional difficulty.

Program Specifics

  • Aftercare planning is provided to help youth transition back home or into stepdown care.
  • Alumni Services provides ongoing support and referral services to alumni. There are numerous independent living and educational scholarships available.
  • Career Readiness Program

    Male/Female, Ages 14-18
    Location:
    Latrobe, Westmoreland County

    Adelphoi offers a Career Readiness Program that includes various Career Preparation tracks including Culinary Arts, Small Engine Repair, Computer Technology, Horticulture, Emergency Medical Response and Auto Detailing.

    The program is structured to include up to 40 youth per year. Students are selected from among the 200 students in residential placement who attend school at Adelphoi’s main campus in Latrobe, Westmoreland County.

    At the start of the program, teachers work with each student to develop a Vocational Action Plan. The plan outlines the youth’s program-related goals, as well as his/her goals for career pursuit and/or training after completion of the program. Through the program curriculum, youth in each of the tracks acquire the necessary skills to prepare them for the appropriate career path, or for ongoing vocational training in those areas.

    Youth also learn critical Job Readiness skills that prepare them for finding, obtaining and keeping a job. Skills imparted through this program include interviewing, filling out an application, punctuality, dealing with conflict, interacting with co-workers, dressing appropriately, budgeting, workplace ethics and goal-setting.

    The overall goal of the initiative is to provide students with the knowledge that they need to make appropriate career choices and the vocational and job readiness skills necessary for successful reintegration into their respective communities.

  • Specialized Independent Living

    Male, Ages 16-20
    Locations:
    Duncansville, Blair County
    Latrobe, Westmoreland County

    The Specialized Independent Living Program (SIL) provides care to youth who have been released from alternative-to-secure or secure placement and are in need of independent living skills while receiving minimal supervision. Youth participate in the SIL Program for an average of 4-6 months.

    SIL is a four-tier community-based program that provides staff supervision 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Each level is progressive – as the resident moves upward, he/she is expected to demonstrate more responsibility and accountability, and is expected to demonstrate life skills in real-life situations, such as community-based employment and education. In return, he/she is able to earn progressively more time in the community.

    Independent living classes include instruction in cooking and cleaning, obtaining employment and securing housing. Youth are also required to have bank accounts and learn the importance of budgeting and saving money. Youth must accrue a balance of at least $2,000 in order to fulfill the requirements of the program and be discharged.

    Youth in the SIL Program may attend one of the local public high schools, colleges or trade schools. They also have the opportunity to earn their GED, if desired.

    For more information on Specialized Independent Living, please contact Candice Rinaldi at 724-804-7000 or candice.rinaldi@adelphoi.org.

  • Secure Treatment Facilities

    Male/Female, Ages 13-19
    Locations:
    Middle Creek Male – Unity Township, Westmoreland County
    Middle Creek Female – Unity Township, Westmoreland County
    Middle Creek SO – Unity Township, Westmoreland County

    Secure Treatment Facilities are designed to serve adjudicated delinquent youth who have committed serious or chronic offenses, are aggressive runaway risks, or display other serious delinquent behaviors. Youth committed to this program have usually had prior contact with the court system and may have had several prior placements. They are most often lacking the internal controls necessary to cope in an open setting, thus requiring a secure environment.

    Middle Creek SO provides treatment for high risk youth who have been adjudicated for sexually victimizing behavior, have a founded abuse allegation or self admission of an offense.

    Step-down into a less secure placement within Adelphoi is available as appropriate.
