Tiger Morton Programs and Treatment

The James H. “Tiger” Morton Juvenile Center also offers appropriate residents the opportunity to participate in the Wellness Center programming.  The Wellness Center serves youth who have been adjudicated and sentenced to the custody of the Division of Juvenile Services and require intensive interventions.  Placement on the unit can occur for a variety of reasons ranging from a need for short-term treatment to full program admission due to specialized behavioral health needs.   The unit team consists of case managers, correctional counselors, security staff, and mental health staff who work together to identify and treat the individual needs of these residents.
