Residential Service

Our staff model residences service clients whose needs require 24 hour support and supervision.  Residents of our staff homes have demonstrated a need for a more structured treatment setting. They generally have been unable to function in a less structured environment such as foster care and typically need to work through trauma based issues and develop inter-personal strengths, coping strategies and anger management skills. Within the Treatment Milieu, Enterphase has avoided traditional “group programming” in preference of a more normalized and individualized living circumstance.

Resource/Residence/Day Treatment Goals:

  • A commitment to fully utilize the Enterphase Clinical Support Resources in developing the most effective, individualized treatment modes in consultation with our Psychiatrist, Psychologists and Therapists.
  • To emphasize the strengths and uniqueness of each student, and, as such, individualize his/her treatment plan in terms of those needs.
  • Ensure that all children feel cared for; their sense of self dignity is preserved, as is their need for personal space and privacy.
  • Ensure that staff are committed to openness, listening with kindness and empathy to the hurt that many children have endured.
  • Ensure that our day treatment programming is conducive to providing a stimulating and structured academic environment that addresses both behavioural and academic needs.
  • Ensure that all students placed within the Enterphase Day Treatment Classes are provided with a treatment oriented academic program and as such allow for the provision of an education complimented through treatment goals.
  • Ensure that program/day treatment assessment, program planning, program delivery and evaluation occur in consultation with the child’s parents or guardian.
  • That all staff are supportive and acknowledge that effective change takes place through knowledge and communication. In essence, committed to helping youngsters discuss and effectively deal with major life issues in a positive manner.
  • That all of our staff are academically trained Child & Youth Workers, fully trained in U.M.A.B. (Understanding and Managing Aggressive Behaviors); First Aid and CPR certified; Fire, Safety & Security, Clinical Development certified, having a working knowledge of Anger Management and impulse control techniques.
