 Our Programs And Services Overview

All programs offered by Excelsior utilize Person Centered Recovery Planning {PCRP). This approach allows for flexibility and innovation in meeting needs of youth and their families. We recognize that individuals have unique needs and have the most crucial voice in their search for healthier lives. This voice is critical in directing service planning. Youth Partners and Family Partners are available to provide peer support from another individual with similar lived experiences. This is a key to instilling Hope. Excelsior currently provides services through the following programs:

Behavioral Health Residential (10-21)

Excelsior has over 35 years of experience providing intensive and sub-acute child and adolescent behavioral health residential services. We provide intensive inpatient substance use (ASAM 3.5-Co-occurring enhanced) and psychiatric residential care.

Excelsior provides the State’s most intensive level of care for child welfare. These children and adolescents aged 10-21 have a history of chronic and significant traumatizing experiences (Adverse Childhood Experiences – ACEs) and often an absence of any familial support system resources. These youth receive holistic, trauma­ informed, and evidence-based care. Lengths of stay range from brief intervention to long-term psychiatric residential care. All residential services are integrated with on-site primary medical and education services.

The program serves males and females ages 10-21 and offers a variety of engaging services including crisis response, peer support, medication management, therapeutic recreation, in-home consultation and other non-traditional services. 90% of the program participants are assessed at meeting criteria for inpatient or residential, but for a variety of reasons may not be appropriate for, or willing to access those services.
