Higdon Hill Group Home Program

Hill Crest Behavioral Health Services offers an adolescent Group Home Program for youth ages 12–19 who are unable to maintain placement at home, or in a foster home, but do not require a more restrictive residential treatment center or inpatient acute care.

The Higdon Hill Group Home Program serves males and females ages 12–19. RISE, our Phase II program, serves ages females 18–21 in DHR’s custody with a focus on transitional living services; placement may vary depending upon individual needs.

The Higdon Hill Group Home Program is most appropriate for adolescents who are not ready for the responsibility of independent living, or the intimacy of a foster home, but could benefit from services that assist with transition into the community.

Assessment(s) include:
Psychiatric, with others as needed; nursing, psychosocial and educational.

Individualized services include:
Weekly individual therapy sessions, family therapy sessions when appropriate, psychiatric care, monthly treatment team meetings and master treatment plan reviews, and discharge planning.

Group services:
Group therapy sessions covering such topics as anger management, conflict resolution, stress management and goal setting, recreational therapy, independent living skills and community-based outings.

School/Curriculum features:
Licensed private school with state support services, Master’s-level teachers, facility and community-based instruction.
