River Rock

River Rock is designated as a BRS Intensive Behavior Support program serving twelve youth ages 14 to 17 in a staff-secure, trauma-informed environment with a focus on inclusion, healing, autonomy, and personal growth to allow for step down to a less restrictive environment. Youth participate in programming to include intensive group and Individual counseling, individual skills building, and group and individual outings daily.


The program is designed around an evidence- based cognitive-behavioral restructuring model, a model proven highly effective in addressing youth behavioral issues. This model educates youth of the connection between their thoughts, attitudes, and emotions to their behaviors; to identify "thinking barriers" and substitute responsible thinking, and to increase pro-social thinking and skills through modeling and role-play practices. Each youth accepted into the River Rock Program is assigned a counselor who assesses the youth's individual needs. The River Rock Program utilizes an evidence-based curriculum, including:

  • Aggression Replacement Training (ART)
  • Behaving
  • Charting a New Course
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Workbooks
  • Efficacy
  • Feeling
  • Skill-Streaming
  • Thinking

Activities & Education

Additionally, youth attend school, have daily recreational activities, and, as applicable, also have weekly counseling sessions with a Mental Health Specialist and/or weekly individual and group counseling with a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor. Program completion expected in 3 to 6 months.
