Liberty Point Behavioral Healthcare, located in Staunton, Va., provides trauma-informed psychiatric residential treatment for young men. Our continuum of care is intended to meet the needs of adolescent males, ages 13 to 21, who are experiencing complex emotional, behavioral, and educational difficulties. Programs are specifically designed for youth with psychiatric disorders and co-occurring intellectual disabilities. We also specialize in working with young men who are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
Programs are offered at multiple levels of care to address the needs of each individual. Some youth may require a secure residential setting while others may benefit from a community-based residential treatment approach. Youth attend school and participate in vocational training at Liberty Point Academy located on the secure residential campus.
Treatment goals include improving behavior choices, instilling a sense of responsibility for actions, learning problem-solving skills and developing thinking patterns that support positive relationships.
Liberty Point incorporates a robust vocational and community integration program where pre-vocational skills, vocational aptitude and experiences are explored as a standard both on and off-campus. Liberty Point has partnered with many community organizations that provide options for community service, organized sports leagues and job-readiness training. Residents who demonstrate safe behavior and positive engagement have several opportunities a week to practice their newly acquired skills in our local community.
