Helping troubled youth move toward recovery.
Bethany’s Residential Treatment Program in Grand Rapids, Michigan, offers comprehensive treatment for young males aged 10 to 17 who have demonstrated sexually aggressive or inappropriate behaviors. This program offers your son a loving, home-like setting. Each unit contains a kitchen, dining area, living room, and bedrooms. The Unit Therapist, Unit Supervisor, and Youth Counseling staff offices are also located in the unit.
Our treatment program is individualized to meet your son’s needs. Each program includes group, individual, and family therapies. Licensed psychologists conduct tests and assessments of each youth. Activity therapy is provided so your son can improve social skills like cooperation and teamwork. Aftercare therapy supports youth as they transition back into their communities.
We would be happy to serve your family through our Residential Treatment Program. For information on program costs, education, therapy services, and more, please see our Parent Handbook.
