Health and Wellness

GJR in PA offers a coordinated and comprehensive approach to health care during a youth’s stay on campus.

Each youth receives an initial physical health screening upon admission and routine dental, vision, and hearing assessments. Contracted providers regularly visit the campus to provide services on site, minimizing the need for travel. Upon admission, youth are encouraged to be active participants in managing their health.


Contracted providers include:

  • Primary Care

  • Vision

  • Dental

For more information about health and wellness on campus, please refer to our wellness policy and our wellness assessment.

We participate in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. As a participant in these programs, the organization serves nutritionally balanced meals. The Pennsylvania Department of Education Bureau of Food and Nutrition oversees all participating schools and organizations.


Our goal is to provide evidence-based, trauma-informed care for all youth. Therapy can be expanded to include individual, family, and group services. Emphasis is placed on each individual’s strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences to help develop a person-centered approach to treatment. Critical to success is supporting each individual while enhancing their resiliency skills as they learn the steps to live a life based on recovery and wellness.

If deemed appropriate, youth are evaluated by one of our psychiatrists and seen on a regular basis for follow-up care and prescribed medication management. Our psychiatrists are board certified child and adolescent psychiatrists, as well as a psychologist. We are committed to providing quality, ongoing care.


A subcontracted psychologist also provides services. In addition, based on a clinically identified need, sex offender assessments may also be completed through contracted services.
