William T. Tilden House – Intensive Group Home for Adolescents

BSCS is proud to provide residential services through the Caring Together Initiative. We utilize evidence-based and trauma-informed practices to serve youth and families involved in our care. Our residential programs provide a comprehensive, clinically sophisticated service, which is strength based, youth guided, and family focused. Our programs are designed to develop services to support the needs identified by the youth, family, and referral agencies.

Granite House program provides out-of-home treatment that focuses on stabilizing behavioral health symptoms with the goal of family reunification. The program serves nine adolescents ages 13-18.

Granite House maintains a structured environment, which utilizes group therapy, counseling, and behavioral therapy that focus on learning, responsibility, and understanding one’s behaviors.

By engaging youth and families in treatment, the program seeks to assist adolescents in improving their behavioral health and social functioning in order to achieve their greatest potential and return home to family, friends, and community.

Granite House provides twenty-four-hour care for youth in placement offering a 3 youth to 1 staff ratio. This includes fulfilling basic needs, facilitating educational supports, providing individual and group counseling, promoting a variety of recreational activities, and assisting teens to further their independent living skills. We encourage youth to maintain their ties with the community as well as develop new, life-long supports.

Families
We believe that working with each youth’s family is an integral part of being at Granite House. The program strongly encourages family participation with the program and referral agencies, such as Department of Mental Health (DMH) or Department of Children and Families (DCF), in developing the goals of each youth’s stay. Staff are available to support the youth and family during meetings and visits.

School
For youth enrolled in school, Granite House staff will help to coordinate transportation or teach the youth to use public transportation in the community. Participation in school and/or tutoring is an integral component of the program. The Granite House clinical team will help to facilitate educational, vocational and career goals.

Groups
Granite House provides a variety of daily groups, both formal and informal. These groups are designed to assist adolescents with enhancing their social skills, developing alternative responses, as well as introducing information to assist the youth in making healthy life choices.
