Nexus Treatment Programs Connect with Troubled Children and Adolescents
The Nexus treatment model delivers individualized cognitive behavioral therapy and a rich treatment culture to help troubled children and adolescents eliminate the problems that have become barriers to healthy emotions and behavior.
Our Minnesota and Illinois residential treatment centers use programs centered on themes, décor, language, and phases to create behavioral therapy programs that encourage lifelong learning and growth through the context of relationships.
Our residential programs use individual, group, and family therapy to help youth focus on behavioral and emotional issues, improve social skills, and develop an improved sense of responsibility and caring for the needs and rights of others.
Our treatment teams include psychologists, psychiatrists, case managers, sexuality and family therapists, chemical health specialists, recreational and vocational counselors, and medical staff. The recidivism rate for youth who successfully complete a Nexus treatment program is well below the national average.
Aftercare services focus on continuing support, referrals to other treatment providers, specialized foster care, and in-home counseling services.
