Narrative

This is a DMH funded program serving 2 areas: Milford area and the Needham area.  The Riverside Life Skills Centers are a supportive therapeutic program for adolescents that are experiencing significant emotional difficulties or a psychiatric diagnosis and who are having disruptions in their home, school, or community.  Through a highly structured clinical environment involving therapeutic groups and activities, teens are able to identify and understand their behavior patterns and learn more effective ways of coping, gain insight into their mental health issues, improve their self-esteem, and increase social skills to integrate more effectively into their school and home communities.  We offer small client to staff ratio and focus on a sense of community and well-being that is essential for a teen's recovery.  Additionally we provide strong clinical supports
