Woodinville Community Facility, located in Woodinville, WA, is a skill based program that utilizes the principals and skills of the Integrated Treatment Model, specifically Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). Woodinville strives to prepare youth for successful re-entry by increasing family contact, developing job readiness skills and placement, and supporting educational/vocational goals. Programming is designed to meet the individual needs of all residents, with ongoing modeling and coaching from staff. Woodinville Community Facility is a therapeutic environment that supports young men who demonstrate a willingness to develop their own individual program and prepare for successful community integration.
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.
Information for Parents, Guardians, and Family
Every youth residing at Woodinville 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.
