Intake and Assessment

The Intake and Assessment Unit is a 5 bed unit that houses adjudicated juvenile and adult males committed to DJS custody within the Robert L. Shell Juvenile Diagnostic and Intake Center. Once committed to DJS, they will be scheduled for an available bed. Each youth will receive a series of assessments which will produce recommendations for placement within DJS including individualized treatment needs.  Possible placements include Donald R. Kuhn Treatment Center for maximum security, J.M. Chick Buckbee Juvenile Center for medium security, Kenneth Honey Rubenstein Center for minimum security and the Sam Perdue Juvenile Center’s Gateway Program for sex offender treatment.
