Triumph Treatment Program
Teen Triumph is an RCL 12 residential treatment program specializing in the treatment of behaviorally challenged youth between the ages of 12 and 18. The program is designed to address the treatment and behavior management needs of emotionally traumatized, deprived and disturbed youth and to provide intensive therapy and psychiatric management. The program accepts those having been adjudicated by the juvenile courts and declared wards under W & I 602, and similar profiles under W & I 300 and AB 26.5.
The program provides intensive treatment in a highly structured environment utilizing a multi-modal therapeutic approach. Each youth receives ongoing therapeutic services from program clinicians and counselors. All youth are evaluated by the Program’s Child Psychiatrist within 30 days of admission to the program. Services include individual and group therapy sessions conducted by licensed clinicians (supervised Interns), ongoing monitoring by the psychiatrist and daily coaching by primary counselors. The clinical team and direct care staff meet weekly to consider resident’s assessment of program progress and treatment goals related to the individual treatment plans, needs and overall program expectation.
Evidenced Based Programs (EBP) have been integrated in to the empirically guided treatment program. All residents receive the following EBPs.
Aggression Replacement Training (ART) has three components which work to develop pro-social skills necessary for youth to function in a nonaggressive yet satisfying and effective lifestyle. ART is composed of Anger Control Training, Skillstreaming and Moral Reasoning.
Thinking for a Change curriculum uses as its core, a problem solving program embellished by both cognitive restructuring and social skills interventions. The goal for Thinking for a Change is to effect change in thinking so that behavior is positively impacted.
Thinking It Through is a competency-based curriculum for independent living skills development in foster youth. Components include necessary information regarding Education, Employment, Daily Living Skills, Choices and Consequences, Survival Skills, Interpersonal and Social Skills.
Why Try? The Why Try program consists of ten visual analogies (pictures) with solutions and questions written around each picture to help youth gain insight into how to deal with daily challenges. The goal of the program is to help youth answer the question, “why try in life?”, when they are frustrated, confused or angry with life’s pressures and challenges. The program teaches youth that trying hard in life and putting effort into challenges at home, at school and with peers is worth the effort.
Focus Groups: Specialized focus groups and treatment interventions are offered to youth based on the individual treatment needs identified in their initial comprehensive assessment. These include but are not limited to, substance abuse, survivors of sexual molest, PTSD/trauma, grief and loss.
Family Involvement and Counseling is provided for all families which includes family engagement, education, safety planning, reunification, discharge and after care planning.
Assessment Protocol: Individualized treatment is guided by a comprehensive assessment administered to all youth at the beginning of treatment. A pre-test and post-test administration of a variety of assessments, measures program progress and efficacy. The initial structured assessment begins at intake and includes the youth, the youth’s family and Probation Officer/Referral Agent. The following assessments are completed in the first 30 days after admission, Risk Assessment, Children’s Depression Inventory, Conners 3rd Edition, Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory, Youth Outcome Measures and the Ansell-Casey Skills Assessment. The Woodcock-Johnson Educational Assessments assists in the determination of the appropriate educational placement. Treatment goals and interventions are prescribed by the outcome of the comprehensive assessment. Progress is measured by periodic re-administration of the assessments during treatment and discharge.
