About the Evening Treatment Center (ETC)

The Evening Treatment Center (ETC) serves adolescents who are involved with the Office of Juvenile Probation or the Children and Youth Agency. The program is offered to males and females ages 13-18. Participants can be referred to the program in two ways: court-ordered by Juvenile Probation after disposition or recommended by a Children and Youth Caseworker. Participants will be transported to the program after school and then transported home at 8:30pm as long as they live within a 12-mile radius of the facility. During the summer months, the participants will be transported from their homes to the program. The length of the program will be determined by the participant’s treatment needs. The participant’s goals, program length, and groups will be determined based on recommendations from the Juvenile Probation Officer or Children and Youth Caseworker, consultation with the parents/guardians, and results of various assessments. The ETC participants will participate in evidence based programs, as well as psycho-educational groups. While at the program, participants will receive an evening meal and snack. They will be given time to complete their homework, as well as recreation time.
