Watch the video for a guided virtual tour of our 165-acre campus to learn more about the work being done in CCHO’s residential treatment program, and read through a few more details below.
An in-ground pool bordered by an open horse pasture, a baseball/softball field, an outdoor basketball court and a geodome provide plenty of physical activity outlets for residents. A vast wooded area with hiking trails as well as a ropes course with a Certified Ropes Course Instructor and a new gymnasium augment the overall experience that residents gain during placement here.
Residents also meet weekly with the music therapist at the beginning of their stay to foster connection within the program, discover residents’ likes and dislikes, and address any integration problems, while utilizing a music-oriented approach.
Independent living skills are interwoven into all aspects of client life. Children get an average of 3-4 hours of individual therapy and 5-7 hours of CPST services. All residents also participate in 3 hours of Day Treatment groups with their cottage peers 7 days a week.
Each child is able to participate in individual art therapy to assist in an alternative expression of thoughts and feelings. Residents have the opportunity to explore a variety of art media as they acknowledge and process hurt, grief and trauma from their past.
Equine Therapy that utilizes relationship logic and biofeedback assists in processing trauma and further developing social and coping skills. Click here to learn more about our innovative equine program at One Heart Stables.
Nursing and Psychiatric services are offered on campus to monitor and manage medication and ensure the overall wellbeing of each child. In addition to using medications conservatively, psychiatric services include holistic viewpoints as well as ongoing collaboration with the cottage treatment teams to ensure efficient and effective medication utilization. GeneSight, a test that combines personal genetic data with medication information, is used to shorten a resident’s road to recovery and optimize medication success
Our Integration Therapist supports the family unit through the child’s transition into residential care, his/her treatment while here, and the transition back into the home and/or community. We currently are working to develop programming that will allow us to provide more consistent aftercare support for the children and families/foster families involved with the child’s case once he/she discharges from our residential program to continue to ensure a successful transition into the community.
In putting the children first, we seek to put the family first as well in hopes this will build stronger and healthier families and children.
Weekly interdisciplinary team meetings occur to discuss the progression of each child including cottage, life, school performance, therapy and other aspects of resident care.
