Parkston Residential Facility
Psychiatric Residential Treatment Center - Parkston serves both female and male youth ages 12-17 that have experienced concerning legal, school, or family behaviors.
The program works with the youth to develop healthier attitudes and coping skills for the behaviors that caused the need(s) for treatment. The Parkston program also works with youth who have experienced chemical use and/or have had their lives impacted by other's chemical use.
While using an individual approach, Our home, Inc. also emphasizes a modality that includes the utilization of a therapeutic group milieu, in which peers become an important part of each youth's daily program, by developing concepts that include; respect for self and others, development of healthy relationships, developing and meeting expectations, and responsibility to provide and promote a safe and secure environment.
The Parkston program has a Chemical Dependency counselor on staff that provides several groups including 12-step programming, an education group, and relapse prevention. These groups are designed to help youth strengthen their recovery program, prepare to enter a recovery program or develop better skills for dealing with peer pressure and other cause of use.
A multidisciplinary treatment team works with the youth and family to design a treatment plan that addresses each youth's individual needs and objectives.
