Good Shepherd Services is a residential treatment center serving adolescents and families from all over the State of Maryland. To be admitted, a child must be between 13-21 years, and must be in grades 8-12. Residential treatment is a very intensive level of care. In order to be funded for this level of care, documentation from treatment professionals must conclude that an adolescent requires a secured 24 hour intensive treatment environment in order to be safe. The final decision for admission is based upon the treatment needs for the applicant and Good Shepherd Services’ ability to meet those needs. The Director of Admissions is available to talk with families or agencies about potential applicants.
