COMPREHENSIVE ASSESSMENT AND SHORT TERM TREATMENT (CAST); PLYMOUTH, NH
Our Comprehensive Assessment & Short-term Treatment (CAST) program was founded with the philosophy that all adolescent residential treatment should be considered a respite. It is a chance for the family and other stakeholders to catch their breath, and then evaluate what is working and what is not. From this point of reflection, we develop a plan of care that can enable the adolescent to succeed in the least restrictive, community-based setting that is possible.
CAST thoroughly evaluates a student’s strengths and needs during a 60-to 90-day residential placement. The program serves adolescent males who range from 11 to 19 years old. CAST assessments rely on psychological testing and extensive clinical interviewing with students, their families, and their collateral contacts. This enables our clinical team to form connections with students and then present findings in a developmental, bio-psycho-social, and holistic framework. The CAST clinical team will develop individual treatment plans for students and deliver clinical mental health treatment, which includes crisis intervention that is based on the student’s needs.

Hall Farm: Hall Farm serves adolescents and young adults, ages 11- 20, who exhibit significant negative behaviors attributable to co-occurring mental health conditions, trauma, and neurobehavioral challenges including Pervasive Developmental Disorders (Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, PDD-NOS), Attention Deficit- Hyperactivity Disorder, Nonverbal Learning Disorder, Auditory Processing Disorder, Expressive language disorder or mild intellectual disability. Due to negative and at times aggressive behaviors, these students have struggled to find success in traditional school systems and/ or other day and residential treatment environments resulting in attachment disruption.
