"Success Using Morale, Motivation, Individual, and Treatment"
The S.U.M.M.I.T. Program provides residential programming for adolescent males ages 12 to 18 years old with varying backgrounds and histories of system involvement who would benefit from a short term residential stay (3-6 months). Clients are either Adjudicated Delinquent or Child in Need of Assistance and court ordered into foster group care. Clients have either acquired delinquent charges prior to placement or are experiencing such severe disruptive at home or in the community that future delinquent behavior is probable without intervention. S.U.M.M.I.T. has successfully been used either as an initial effort, prior to longer-term residential placements, or as an alternative to previously failed placements. We utilize a cognitive-behavioral approach incorporating milieu, individual therapy, group therapy, families and communities.
