Program

Mental Health Program

The NETS mental health program consists of individual, group and life skills therapy. Each client has an individual treatment plan with specific therapy goals and expected outcomes. Successful completion of the program is based on meeting therapy goals and making educational progress on their IEP goals.

Educational Program

Classes are smaller and individualized to meet the specific educational goals of our clients.
Each client has an individual education plan and it is expected that they will make a part-time transition back to their home school toward the end of treatment. This helps to ensure a successful transition at the end of the program.

Family Involvement

Parental involvement and commitment to therapy is essential to your youth’s success at NETS. Weekly individual family therapy is available to all of our clients. Each family meets with the family therapist to develop goals and a meeting schedule. If you are currently working with a family therapist, NETS will coordinate with your provider (with your signed permission) to ensure ongoing, effective care.
