About the Evening Treatment Center (E.T.C.)

Proud recipient of the 2018 CCAP Best Practices Award. The Evening Treatment Center (E.T.C.) 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 three ways: recommended by a Juvenile Probation Officer while the youth is awaiting adjudication/disposition, 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. 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 E.T.C. participants will participate in evidence based programs, as well as psycho-educational groups. The following evidence based programs will be offered: Aggression Replacement Training, Thinking for a Change, Strengthening Families, and Alternatives. In addition, participants will be able to participate in the following psycho-educational groups: Employment Skills Development, Life Skills Development, Coping Strategies, Relationship Skills, and Therapeutic Group Discussion. 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.
