Day Treatment Program

CREW-Create, Respect, Empower, Wellness

For youth supported by the Department of Mental Health, BSCS is proud to offer an afterschool program designed to offer individually targeted psycho-educational, recreational, and therapeutic groups to develop and practice skills needed to be successful at home and in the community.

Group activities are designed to meet the youth’s developmental and psychosocial needs. The latency age group (6-12) meets Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and the adolescent (13-18) group is on Tuesday and Thursday.

The structured activities focus on the youth’s strengths, needs, and resiliency. Topics include positive social interaction, critical thinking, problem solving, independent living skills, confidence, leadership, and individual skill development to ensure the youth is successful in his or her daily activities.

CREW is a fun, supportive, and healthy setting where youth can explore their needs, develop skills, and practice those skills with their peers.

Funding Source

The program is funded by the Department of Mental Health (DMH).

Treatment Tracks

The Beal Street program has two tracks of treatment: the family reunification track and the independent living track.

Family Reunification Track

For youth in the family reunification track, the clinical treatment focuses on strengthening the functioning of the family system and fostering optimal emotional, behavioral and psychological growth. Youth on the family reunification track are encouraged to spend as much time at home with family as is clinically appropriate. Family participation in treatment planning, visits, and family therapy is necessary to meet the family’s goals. Beal Street believes that working with each youth’s family is an integral part of being at Beal Street. The program strongly encourages family participation with the program and referral agencies in developing the goals of each youth’s stay. Staff are available to support the youth and family during meetings and visits.

Independent Living Skills Track

The independent living skills track is for older youth with ties to the South Shore whose goal is to develop independent living skills while working on their permanency plan. These youth attend school in the community or obtain a GED. Youth are encouraged to pursue options for higher education or vocational training. The program assists youth to get a job and work on skills that will enhance their ability to be independent. These youth are provided with group services, on-site clinical case management, and family work.
