Treatment in the least restrictive environment
The philosophy of George Junior Republic’s home based care is that at risk youth should be treated in the least restrictive environment appropriate to meet their needs and safety. Many youth can be maintained in their homes with a structured routine and support system without having to undergo treatment in a residential facility.
The George Junior Republic’s home based youth services program furthers this philosophy through intensive individual and family interventions to assist families with addressing barriers to healthy family relationships and interactions.
These programs are designed to prevent having to take youth out of their homes by providing daily support, supervision, and treatment for youth and families. In addition, these services can be utilized as aftercare following residential placement or reunification following foster care for a more successful integration back into the home, school, and community environment.
