We understand it can be difficult to determine that a specialized residential treatment program is right for your son. That is why we offer a focused, initial assessment to identify your family concerns while providing treatment services to your son in a therapeutic, home-like setting. During the assessment process, we identify your son’s behavioral and emotional needs and provide professional recommendations for reducing or eliminating the sexual behavior problems that have become barriers to healthy relationships and strong living standards.

Upon admission, staff at Kaizen Academy use the following assessment tools, as needed:

  • Various personality inventories, projective tests, cognitive functioning tests, family relationship assessments, psycho-sexual assessments, and medical testing will be gathered, reviewed, and/or administered.
  • Administration of the Beck Youth Inventories – 2
    • Depression Inventory
    • Anxiety Inventory
    • Anger Inventory
    • Disruptive Behavior Inventory

  • Biopsychosocial Assessment/Mental Status Exam
  • Suicidal Assessment
  • Youth Self Report
  • “Multiple Eyes-On” observations for in-the-moment data to support and inform
