Manatee Palms Youth Services offers a full continuum of care for children and adolescents in need of behavioral, emotional and psychiatric interventions as well as blended educational services. Our “System-of-Care” focuses on trauma informed care principles and offers distinct levels of care.
Each of these levels of care is specifically designed to return the child to the family or living environment with the coping skills necessary to make safer and more productive choices in their lives. Through substantial investments we have created an environment of care that incorporates cutting-edge safety measures while yielding a comfortable, normative experience for our kids during their stay. The attention to our environment of care and culture is mirrored by our clinical programming. We utilize only evidence-based best practice in our therapeutic milieu, including dialectical behavioral therapy, and motivational interviewing.
Treatment services include individual, group and expressive therapies, each individualized to the specific child’s strengths and needs. Psychiatric, Medical, and Nursing care is delivered 24 hours a day, seven days a week with face-to-face contact with the child's psychiatrist weekly. And at Manatee Palms we are committed to validating best practices by partnering with the University of South Florida through research and training programs for our staff.
At Manatee Palms we also provide on-site academic instruction for our children with highly qualified, certified ESE teachers. Educational assessments are conducted upon admission to tailor the material and teaching methods to each child's specific needs. This educational experience is enhanced through computer-based curriculum and credits offered are transferrable to the child's home school after treatment is complete.
