Arcadia Place is an eight-bed Foster Group Care home that provides transitional or long-term foster care for adolescent girls age 13 – 17, who may have moderate to severe emotional/behavioral problems and placement is contingent upon court orders and family case plan goals. While at Arcadia Place the children are prepared to be reunited with their families or a more traditional foster home placement. For more information about Arcadia Place, please call 850.469.3510.
Some children are better served in a group home than a traditional or therapeutic foster home. In these instances, FamiliesFirst Network (FFN) in Circuit One refers boys and girls ages 13 to 17 to Cabot Heights where they can receive behavioral health services and have access to a team that encourages their strengths and abilities. These young boys are dependents of the State of Florida Child Welfare Program and are in need of a supportive environment. While with us at Cabot Heights, our team places an emphasis on helping them to achieve goals set by FFN and the court as written in their family case plans. In our transitional or long-term foster care program, we help them prepare for living in a family setting or in an independent environment.
Drug and Alcohol Adolescent Residential Treatment (DAART)
Young people between the ages of 13 and 17 who are coping with co-occurring issues such as substance abuse and mental health can find support in this residential treatment program. DAART serves not only to encourage and motivate children, but also their families. On average, stays in our program last three to six months. We also are prepared for children who experience relapse and need to stay longer. The program is structured and focuses on personal growth and development using cognitive-behavioral therapy and individual, group and family therapies. It is less restrictive than inpatient programs: coed, voluntary and unlocked. A daily schedule of events and treatments keep our young clients busy and on the path to recovery. DAART is an accredited school located on the Lakeview campus that serves clients who attend the school as part of their structured activities. Children who are enrolled in school are required to attend. Teachers are from the Escambia County School System. All programs at DAART are evidence-based treatments and our staff keep pace with empirically based best practices.
