The Significance of Structure in a Group Residence Program
When determining placement for an adolescent in need of a group residence, several factors must be considered in order to provide the healthiest environment for the adolescent. All programs should share an understanding that no adolescent will be removed from the program because of her behavior, and all programs should attend to specific needs of adolescents (such as mature adult models, sufficient privacy, and resources for planning for the future). Beyond this, programs should be assessed on their age range, "behavior culture," house staff, community resources, and professional staff. Weighing these variables in each case will help make appropriate assignments for adolescents with specific care needs.
