Vicki Douglas Programs and Treatment

Vicki Douglas Juvenile Center is not designated as a treatment center  due to the fact a youth’s typical stay in detention is no more than 12 weeks. VDJC does have  treatment staff available, and individual and group counseling is offered on a daily basis. This counseling is basic and provides therapeutic and crisis counseling for at risk youth. Counselors at VDJC complete our youth’s  initial mental health assessments which assists DHHR and the courts in making an informed decision to meet the Youth’s treatment needs.   In addition Vicki Douglas Juvenile Center offers community resources to include a Change of Fate Program to help  as an invention for at risk youth.  Vicki Douglas staff interact with various community partners to assure that every residents individual emotional needs are met.
