Community Based Treatment

About the Program

The Community Based Treatment (CBT) Program supports an 8 bed non-secure unit. Housing court ordered coed youth that range from 12 to 17 years old.


The purpose of the Eaton County Youth Facility CBT Program is to provide trauma-informed rehabilitative services for youth who have been adjudicated delinquent and deemed in need of services by the Juvenile Division of the Eaton County Family Court.

It is the goal of the Community Based Treatment Program to rehabilitate each youth using evidence-based treatment to develop the skills necessary to lead more productive and positive lives.


As residents progress through the four levels of the program they are expected to assume additional responsibilities within the program, at home and in the community.
