The Mitchell Home
The Mitchell Home provides Level 3 residential treatment for five girls ages 12-18. Girls are typically in the custody of the State of Alaska, however, we do accept some private family placements. Using evidence based teaching family model, we provide treatment to females presenting with diagnoses such as FASD, ADHD, conduct and co-occurring disorders. Youth admitted to this program re typically academically behind their peers and are labeled severely emotionally disturbed.
Clinical assessments, individual and group therapy, provided by our clinical staff result in measurable improvement. Teaching family staff work closely with families, school personnel, juvenile probation officers and social workers to help youth develop a positive character, academic discipline, and work ethic.
Young women are working on returning to their natural or foster families or their own apartment and also learn pro-social behaviors and skills to help them achieve their goals in life. Mitchell is a female only, Level 3, long-term treatment program, providing behavioral rehabilitation services to five youth ages 12-18 with staff to client ratio 1:5. Residents stay an average of one year.
