Abstract:

This paper describes three innovative juvenile rehabilitation programs. The author bases his comments on his observations of the programs, interviews with staff and juveniles, and comparisons of the programs' treatment methods with successful techniques reported in the evaluation literature. The programs are (1) VisionQuest, the Tucson-based program that works with youths in wilderness camps, on wagon trains, or in other high impact/adventure formats; (2) Paint Creek Youth Center, a small, experimental, staff-secure program in southern Ohio, which appears to have put together a fairly unique combination of more conventional treatment methods that together create a strong program; and (3) Key Tracking in Massachusetts, which has developed and institutionalized some of the best techniques for working with juveniles in the community.
