WHAT IS TREATMENT BASED ON?
Treatment is based on cognitive behavioral therapy with a strong emphasis in social skills, anger regression techniques and empathy enhancement.
Since the program is criterion-based with additional emphasis on individualized needs, the length of treatment varies for every youth.
The SOAR Program partners with other community resources to provide effective treatment while ensuring community safety.
