Ironwood Maine 45-Day Assessment Program
Ironwood offers a 45-day assessment program for families needing immediate support and stabilization. The initial period of stabilization is intended to offer 24 hour safety, support and supervision while evaluating the true needs of your child from a therapeutic, behavioral and educational viewpoint. Families will have the option of continuing our long term program, which would be an additional 7-12 months, or consider other potential recommended programs.
The services of our multidisciplinary team will include: A Treatment Plan, including a diagnosis, behavioral observations and recommendations; a Psychiatric Evaluation with medication recommendations (if needed); an Educational Plan with specific goals and course recommendations (residents will have the option to recover essential credits, prepare for the SAT’s, or gain organizational skills, as well); and a Wellness Plan, with goals for health and fitness, in addition to nutritional recommendations.
