SUMMIT is a residential-based therapeutic program for youth. This program offers strength-based treatment for behavioral issues in an environment where youth are able to address their difficulties and change patterns of behavior. All program components work toward stabilizing challenging behaviors, teaching effective life and living skills, and reestablishing a positive family culture.

The Summit program incorporates three stages of involvement within the targeted three to six month residency. The design of this program takes into consideration a process that involves stabilization, short-term intensive treatment, and transition to family or alternate family settings such as kinship, foster care, adoption or a Youth Transition to Adulthood program. Individual, group and family therapy are offered in conjunction with residential programming directed at reintegrating youth back into their biological families or an alternative family setting.
