Residential Program

Chaddock's residential program, located on our 30 acre campus in the heart of a midwestern community, provides a holistic, nurturing environment focused on helping children restore the ability to form trusting relationships. In each of our five cottage settings, children work with therapists, counselors and staff to overcome severe behavioral challenges as a result of painfully traumatic pasts. Our goal is to offer parents and children the tools they need to build cohesive and loving relationships.

A child’s stay in the residential program can be from 12 – 18 months. Parents are involved in weekly therapy sessions and quarterly meetings with the Treatment Team. Working with therapists and family service coordinator, parents are encouraged to visit and phone their children on a regular basis. In addition, parents receive information and recommendations from the Treatment Team on strategies for success once their child returns home.

Chaddock School

While receiving treatment in our residential setting, children are able to attend Chaddock’s on-campus accredited, special education school. Chaddock School serves children in the residential programs, as well as youth from the surrounding area who have not experienced success in a traditional public school classroom. Community students attending Chaddock School have an identified emotional or learning disorder that can no longer be addressed in their local school district. The teachers at Chaddock School are special education certified and trained in trauma-informed interventions used within the classroom. Residential children also have the option to attend the local public school should that be a better fit both behaviorally and academically.
