Twin Rivers Community Facility is located in Richland Washington. Twin Rivers provides Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to all youth with an emphasis on individualized treatment and transition. They are able to learn and generalize skills in a community based setting. Twin Rivers provides youth opportunities to work towards their goals which include attending community based programs such as attending local secondary school, community college, skills center, and employment opportunities. They work closely with each youth allowing opportunities to complete community service hours and restitution. The treatment team embraces individual differences and we learn through our relationships with our clients of how to assist them in achieving their goals. Youth have many opportunities to be in the community to participate in shopping, recreation, field trips, local community activities, family visits including earning community involvement passes to go out in the community with family. Twin Rivers works collaboratively with youth and their families to support a successful transition back into their local community.
Information for Parents, Guardians, and Family
Every youth residing at Twin Rivers has an assigned counselor who serves as the youth’s case manager. Counselors work with the youth to assess their needs and provide appropriate treatment. Treatment options cover a wide variety of areas including interpersonal skills training, anger replacement training, and others. Some of this treatment will occur during counseling sessions with the case manager, while others will occur in a specialized setting.
Visitation is scheduled in advance by calling the facility prior to the visit. Most visitation occurs on weekends, however weekday visiting is available upon request.
Reentry and Transition
Parents, guardians, and family members are invited to be present for all reentry planning meetings and are considered part of the team that builds the reentry plan for their youth. The goal of reentry is to build a plan that returns the youth to their home community in a way that meets their needs for school, work, and living arrangements.
Youth released from a community facility may or may not have a parole obligation. JR currently provides parole services to about half of the youth who they serve. Your counselor can tell you if your child will be on parole.
