Frequently Asked Questions
How long should I expect my son/daughter to be involved in a residential treatment program at Fox Run?
Each patient’s length of stay varies depending on the level of service needed and how quickly the child responds to treatment. Our Clinical Team will determine the appropriate program for your child based on clinical assessments. For the RTC and the Children’s Program, our average length of stay is approximately 60 to 120 days. Our Visions program is a longer-term treatment plan that may last from 12 to 24 months. Our Intensive Residential Treatment program is designed for a 30 to 60 day length of stay.

How often can I visit?
Fox Run has scheduled visitation twice a week. Upon admission, we will provide you with specific visitation information for your child’s individualized program. If you are unable to make a scheduled visitation, please contact your child’s case manager or therapist and they will gladly reschedule a more convenient day or time that will be accommodating to your child’s treatment plan.
I am concerned about my child falling behind in their schoolwork while they are receiving treatment. How does the center incorporate school into my child’s schedule?
Fox Run is a public school, that is a partnership between Fox Run, St.. Clairsville city schools and the ECOESC (East Central Ohio Educational Service Center). In addition to providing intense therapeutic treatment, Fox Run is also committed to maintaining a strong educational presence during residential placement. Our year-round school offers a unique hands-on learning environment. Each resident receives five hours of educational coursework five days a week focusing on subjects including: language arts, mathematics, science, social studies and health. Gym and art are also offered through rehabilitation therapy.
Your child will receive credit for all coursework completed during their residential treatment. Transferable credits will be submitted to the local school system upon a signed release and are recognized as a fulfillment of graduation requirements.
