About the Program
SOAR serves clients between the ages of 13 to 18. The program implements Sanctuary® principles and equips residents with the skills they need to function as positive, productive citizens – in the family, workplace, and community. SOAR utilizes Trust Based Relational Intervention to promote the healing of relationships and improve the client’s capacity for trust and safety, all while healing past trauma.
Clients are provided with 24-hour support and supervision, utilizing a strengths-based perspective that includes opportunities of self-esteem development, relationship building, learning, and practicing appropriate coping mechanisms. Upon admission, an age-appropriate plan of care is developed, including short and long-term goals. This plan is used as an outline for the client’s treatment process, as well the intent for family involvement and support through the process.
Each client participates in a variety of therapeutic approaches, including dialectical behavior, affect, expressive, pet, and more. Additionally, the client will learn life skills such as social skills, cultural awareness, self-esteem, drug and alcohol awareness, money management, cooking, and more. An on-site academic curriculum is provided in partnership with the Lincoln Intermediate Unit number 12.
- Referred adolescents must have the mental and physical ability to benefit from the assessment, curriculum, and interventions offered.
- Adolescents referred must be willing to participate in activities that will allow them to return to a less restrictive setting, and be able to function in a highly structured community-based setting.
- Based on records, less-intensive residential care has been deemed insufficient to prevent clinical deterioration and/or stabilize the client’s behavior.
- Admission and the provision of services are made without the regard to race, color, religion, sexual identity or orientation.
