Opening in February 2024 and accepting referrals now, Bar None Haven provides locked level-6 residential Mental Health Services to male and female adolescents, ages 11 through 17, who meet the severe emotional disturbance criteria and have been assessed to require a locked setting for an additional level of safety. Haven’s treatment foundation is rooted in the Attachment, Regulation, and Competency (ARC) theoretical framework, and integrated with Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). It is expected that a majority of youth in Haven’s programming will have a history of prior mental health interventions with ongoing concerns related to safety, trust, self-esteem, and identity. Some may be victims of sexual, physical, and/or emotional abuse, and demonstrate self-destructive patterns of coping.
