For Parents

In an effort to assist you with your decision on appropriate placement, Fox Run has an Assessment and Referral team available to guide you through the admission process and review the program options. Whether you need guidance through the residential referral process, have questions on how to obtain outpatient services, or require an inpatient psychiatric hospitalization, contact Fox Run at 740-695-2131. Please allow our friendly and experienced team to be your first point of contact for your mental health needs.


At Fox Run, we want each resident to have the support of family and encourage communication with your child.
Phone Calls — Upon admission at Fox Run, you will be asked to provide a list of people that your child is able to speak with over the phone. There are assigned phone times for each treatment program. Your child will be able to make phone calls during their designated time. Your child may also contact their case worker or probation officer with their Case Manager or Therapist during the day. These calls do not count toward their phone time.
Unopened incoming mail will be delivered to your child by staff. Your child will be asked to open the mail in front of a staff member. The staff member will not read your child’s mail. The staff will ask to see what came in the envelope or package. Any items that deemed unsafe will be sent back to you or the guardian.


Visitation may be monitored and will be limited to those individuals you have indicated on the approved contact list. If an approved visitor is unable to attend a scheduled visitation, your child’s therapist or case manager can approve another time.
You or your child may refuse visitors at any time. Fox Run also reserves the right to restrict visitors for therapeutic reasons. Any items brought back from visitation will also be checked in by staff and added to your child’s inventory of belongings.

Home Visitation – TCA

A Therapeutic Community Assignment means a child can leave Fox Run with a parent/guardian or staff for a designated period of time. Residents earn TCA’s by working through the level system. Your child’s Treatment Team will discuss whether or not he/she has earned a TCA, and the physician will write an order that determines the amount of time that he/she can be away from the building. TCA’s are used to determine the success of treatment in a preferred setting.
