ABOUT CLEVELAND CHRISTIAN HOME
Cleveland Christian Home of Cleveland, Ohio has provided treatment and support for adolescent boys in northeastern Ohio for over 115 years. Christian Cleveland Home offers specialized residential treatment, a partial hospitalization program (PHP), and community-based services for teenage boys struggling with severe emotional or behavioral disorders. According to the facility’s website, most clients are referred to the treatment program by foster care facilities or juvenile court.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Cleveland Christian Home provides three types of residential treatment. The facility offers a traditional, or “open” residential program and intensive residential treatment for adolescents who indicate a risk of harming themselves or others. The facility also operates the Hope Center, a residential program designed to treat youth with a history of sexual abuse or exposure to inappropriate sexual influences at a young age. To determine an appropriate residential program, clients first participate in an initial psychiatric and behavioral assessment upon admission.
According to the facility’s website, Cleveland Christian Home serves as a “time out” from life on the streets, foster care, or juvenile detention. The Cleveland Christian Home also serves as a short-term shelter for juveniles awaiting juvenile court. While residing in the facility, adolescents participate in a structured schedule of specialized classroom instruction, recreational activities, and group counseling sessions. Sessions may address a range of relevant topics, including anger management, substance abuse, emotional regulation, trauma, and abuse.
Along with its residential programs, Cleveland Christian Home also requires residents to attend a partial hospitalization program (PHP), which provides clinical services for its residents. PHP may include ongoing psychiatric assessments, psychotherapy sessions, medication management, and therapeutic recreation. Cleveland Christian Home also offers trauma-informed services for adolescents and families within the community. Provided in-home or in-office, these counseling services are designed to resolve conflict, improve communication, increase coping skills, prevent abuse and neglect, and help families remain together.
Cleveland Christian Home employs a team of licensed social workers, licensed professional counselors (LPCs), case managers, child and adolescent therapists, case managers, residential treatment specialists, and residential youth workers.
