Who can go to the Courage Center?
The Courage Center is open to children and young adults between the ages of eight and 18. DCS or juvenile probation refer all children to the Center. The Courage Center offers services to children from Indianapolis and surrounding communities. Many of the children at the Center have diagnoses such as ADHD, disruptive behavior, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, depressive disorders and learning disabilities. In many cases, these children require therapy to address behavioral challenges. Our treatment program is structured around the Teaching-Family Model. The youth who live at the Courage Center receive a range of treatments, including trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing and dialectical behavioral therapy, all of which are tailored to meet the youth’s needs.
