Residential Treatment for Children

Residential Treatment for Children

Through the Dreams Program, Fox Run Center offers residential psychiatric treatment for boys and girls ages 5–12. The Dreams Program is designed to teach young residents how to manage symptoms, emotions and behaviors associated with traumas and other mental-health related problems. Our primary goal in this program for children is to identify and implement solutions that support their return to the community.

To be qualified for the Dreams program at Fox Run Center, residents must be experiencing symptoms associated with severe depression or other Axis I diagnoses, family and/or social conflicts, anxiety, excessive fears, severe problems with self-esteem, mood and/or thought disorders, impulse control disorders, aggression, self-injurious behaviors, coping with trauma, sexual, physical, and/or verbal abuse, and/or neglect.

For nearly 30 years, Fox Run has endeavored to provide the highest-quality mental health services for children and families in a comfortable, non-institutional environment designed for youth. Our residents come to us from a variety of settings including their own homes, county agencies, physicians, and acute hospitals. Each admission is individualized and developed to meet the specific needs of each child. We encourage the involvement of all care providers whenever possible, and when clinically appropriate, we work to support each family as they learn to understand the mental health issues that their loved one is facing. Our goal is to provide each patient with the treatment, care, social skills and leadership interactions to give them a solid foundation to support a future of healing and hope.
