Our child and adolescent residential treatment programs give our clients the time, space, and support they need to recover from mental illness. When our clients come to us they learn how to manage their diagnosis and acquire skills needed to stay healthy and live transformed lives. Clients enjoy comfortable living areas and participate in social activities on campus. All of our residential facilities are licensed by their individual states. We offer age-appropriate socialization and support as well as individual and group activities.
While our residential communities provide specialized support by age, we also provide individualized, evidence-based treatment by diagnosis. Together with our integrated and holistic approach, we are able to provide a clear path to recovery for each individual client. Our goal is to address core issues, using evidence-based best practices to help our clients set a course toward a future filled with hope and new beginnings.

There are many different factors that can affect an older person’s emotional and physical well-being including declining health, ongoing medication issues and lifestyle changes. The complex combination of medical and psychiatric issues can make diagnosis and treatment programs planning challenging. We offer specialized acute geriatric psychiatric care for adults 50 years or older who are experiencing psychiatric symptoms that significantly impair their social, occupational or other areas of functioning. The Older Adult & Geriatric Treatment Program provides diagnostic evaluation and treatment of common late-life psychiatric disorders including depression, incapacitating anxiety, dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease, severe emotional aspects of physical illness, paranoia, fearfulness and late-life schizophrenia or psychosis. Our inpatient programs are designed to meet the complex mental health in a comprehensive inpatient program. Each patient receives a thorough assessment of both physical and mental health. Our interdisciplinary team works with the patient and family to develop an effective and individualized plan of care.
Perimeter Healthcare is leading the way in building systems that realize the prevalence of trauma in the clients we serve. We recognize the impact trauma causes, not just for our clients, but also for the people working with our clients including family, caregivers and other clinicians. We work to implement this knowledge into all of our programming as well as staff education across our network of facilities.
Untreated Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) leave a lasting effect on a person as they grow into adulthood, leaving a path of destruction resulting in either diminished mental health and/or general health conditions. Perimeter Healthcare assists each client in working through these experiences providing tools to appropriately navigate life. Studies show that long periods of exposure to toxic stress cripple the nervous system and sense of safety in relationships, leaving the person exposed afraid, confused, and at times filled with rage. The goal of trauma informed care is to show sensitivity to the survival coping (ultimately the behaviors / symptoms presenting for treatment) of each client and assist them in developing safe, healthy, legal coping that allows them to feel safe in their bodies, with others, and the world.
When assessing each client our protocol includes asking "what happened to the client" rather than "what is wrong with the client." Efforts are made to develop a treatment plan to begin to address these core experiences that have most often either affected the overall development or have impacted him/her in such a way that day to day functioning is exhausting, and at times unbearably painful.
Perimeter Healthcare knows that no one exists alone, and in order to heal, it takes a team of clinicians, caregivers and family members. One of the goals in Trauma Informed treatment is to assess the system from which the client comes from and extend supports to that environment either directly or through referrals to ensure all areas impacted by trauma are addressed.
