Brooksville Youth Academy provides residential treatment programs for male youth ages 13-17 who have mental health treatment and behavioral support needs that require temporary care in a structured, supportive and therapeutic setting.

Brooksville Youth Academy provides evidence-based and trauma-informed treatment services to all students. Master’s level and licensed therapists deliver therapies including; individual, group, family therapy, Trauma Focused – Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Seeking Safety (for co-occurring substance abuse and PTSD), individual counseling, family counseling, Skillstreaming (social skills development) and Independent Living Skills.

The program provides for twenty-four (24) hour per day staff care that consists of screening, evaluation, treatment planning, individualized treatment services, education, and health care services designed to meet the unique and individualized needs of the students. The program is a highly structured, predictable, trauma-responsive, and healthy, therapeutic community that fosters personal growth, social development and responsibility through an array of comprehensive mental health services.

Daily group and individual therapeutic interventions are utilized to motivate, teach, and reshape maladaptive behaviors and thought processes while providing interventions that help students achieve emotional and behavioral stability.

Families are supported through family therapy, improving communication, identifying community resources, visitation, and regular contact with their child. Individualized educational programming, mental health services, social skills (including appropriate recreation), communication skills, and building resilience are utilized to promote growth. Reunification (as appropriate) is established early as a goal and guides treatment as is possible. Towards that end, community (mental health, education, employment, recreation) resources are explored for the returning student and family.
