The Division of Juvenile Services operates regional offices in eight cities across the state, and provides services to all counties on an outreach basis. Services are provided through a complement of professional Juvenile Corrections Specialists who deliver correctional case management services across their respective regions. Juvenile Corrections Specialists are responsible for developing a comprehensive, individualized plan for treatment and rehabilitation for each youth placed onto their case load. Plans are built based on a comprehensive correctional assessment of risk and need. Correctional assessment is accomplished through a collaborative effort between the Youth Correctional Center Assessment Center staff as well as community based Juvenile Corrections Specialist staff. Additional assessments and evaluations are arranged based on the needs of the individual and the availability of specific assessments across the public and private statewide child serving system.
The goals of the treatment and rehabilitation plan are accomplished in a variety of settings across the continuum of care. Youth might receive treatment services in their own home, the home of a family member, in foster or group care, in psychiatric residential treatment care, inpatient care, or institutional care including secure correctional placement.
