The Orion House serves a wide variety of adolescents, demonstrating an extensive range of needs. The adolescents that are served can demonstrate behavioral, learning, emotional or substance abuse issues. Often an adolescent enters the program with a myriad of symptoms. An assessment of the adolescent's therapeutic needs is made within thirty days of his arrival. A clinical treatment plan meeting, including the youth and his family/support members, is held to determine what treatment interventions will best work for the youth and family/support members. The Orion House also provides short-term and emergency placements for adolescents that are in need of stabilization and brief treatment. The adolescents are referred to The Orion House by courts, school districts or directly by their guardian and range in age from 11-19.
