YES claims to be a dual-diagnosis facility. Please, before you admit your child have that confirmed. My child received NO professional counseling beyond drug counseling. (Drug addiction counseling is not a degree...it is a program a person attends for certifcation.)
After 88 days...the staff told me I had to come get my child because they couldn't "handle" him. He was not allowed to graduatethe program and was told he could never come back...not even to their end of summer party. The school teacher at the facility told me he was saddened for my child because he didn't deserve what they were doing. He is a good old who followed the rules but was kicked to the curb like garbage. (He completed 2 full high school classes in 2 weeks.) The problem was is the facility did not have true dual diagnosis treatment and I was lied to about that...they never had him start therapy for PTSD, anxiety disorder, and his MDD.
Thankfully, this was 5 years ago and he is now a healthy adult, in therapy on his own, drug free, and a shift superior at a great restaurant.
We have to place so fast as a parent to save our children that we don't get the opportunity to really research. I reported these concerns to our insurance company...that helped us find placement, and they began reseaching them for insurance recertification.
If you need a placement, don't choose YSS.
