The typical student at Telos is bright but underachieving. Many of our students get lost in traditional academic settings, needing a higher level of individualized support. Telos students tend to be soft hearted, behaviorally mild and clinically complex. Telos staff learn and practice a high standard of care. A kind and patient way of being, relational coaching and a gift for connecting with young people are qualities exemplified by our staff. Employees are certified in important professional competencies designed to promote excellence and best practices across all program domains. A hallmark of our program is the ability of staff to get clinical interventions out of the therapist’s office and into the larger milieu, thus maximizing the power of quality residential treatment. Telos is a principles-based program. Real change occurs in a special therapeutic environment combined with staff’s efforts to model the importance of principled living. Going beyond simple behavioral conditioning, students learn the “why” behind rules, increasing the likelihood they will adopt new ways of living that long outlast their time in the program. Telos provides true individualized treatment, family involvement, staff that live the principles we teach, quality improvement and diagnostic precision. As an owner-operated program, we are committed to reaching our own “telos.” Telos has recently expanded to treat young adults at "Telos U." Check it out at www.telosu.com.
