Day Services: Create, Respect, Empower, Wellness (CREW)

The BSCS CREW program offers a structured, year-round therapeutic after school day program that is a strength based, recovery focused that is designed to meet the emotional and behavioral health needs of children and adolescents ages 6 through 18. How long a youth participates in the program is based on his/her/they individual goals.

Our CREW staff begins with a comprehensive assessment so that we fully understand the needs of the youth. At the core of our work is an individualized plan which focuses on skills development, psychoeducation, and peer supports. The CREW clinical team offer a number of individualized approaches including Group Therapy, Peer Supports, Family Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Treatment (DBT) Skills and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) skills. Our goal is to assist the youth in developing healthy coping skills, positive social interactions, effective life skills and healthy relationships.
