Short Term Residential Treatment

At Remi Vista, we love to see children and youth overcome their past and present issues to have success in live.  That is why he have developed the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. program in our residential facilities.  Our homes provide a fun and challenging home environment for at-risk and developmentally disable youth, where they can grow and develop the skills and character necessary to be productive members of their communities.  We have five homes in the Redding area, three of which care for boys and girls aged 6-18 dealing with behavioral issues related to developmental disabilities and two homes that serve at-risk delinquent or behaviorally challenged males from 13-18 years of age. 

We seek to help our kids grow through our daily activities, mental health treatment, and our special activities like our annual Cost Trip to Patrick’s Point.  We provide mental health treatment to all of our youth which helps them overcome the issues that brought them to placement.  We have Mental Health contracts with surrounding counties and we seek contracts for consumers who come to us from further away. 

To learn more about our homes check out the program information below and feel free to  contact us at 530-244-2765 or send us a message at info@remivistainc.org

At-Risk Program for Males 13-18

S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Program Introduction

Remi Vista uses a therapy-based program to encourage youth to develop responsibility, an internal locus of control and leadership skills. The program contains treatment goals which are both forensic and therapeutic in nature. The forensic nature refers to our responsibility to protect the community and effectively address the factors that make our consumers a safety risk for those around them. The therapeutic nature refers to our responsibility to address the factors that contribute to pathology and dysfunction and encourage the growth and healing of the individual and family. The integration of these two elements enables the consumers to be properly supervised while encouraging them to make progress on their issues in a safe, open environment.

The program is built on the concept that behaviors are in essence, contextual.  This means that offending behavior occurs in a context, not as a unique and discrete behavior that can be isolated and treated apart from the rest of the individual. Thus, in order for growth, healing and correction to occur, the whole person must be addressed through therapy and healthy relationships with others. The healthy relationship includes empathy, genuineness, and unconditional acceptance of the person, accountability, personal boundaries, forgiveness and openness.

It is important to understand that the entire treatment structure for the consumers should always be based on the three treatment goals:

  1. Communication– to encourage the development of healthy communication between the consumer and others around them. Healthy communication is essential for consumers to deal with the community around them and have their needs met appropriately.
  2. Responsibility– to encourage the development of an internal locus of control. This means the consumer will develop the ability to make the right decision in a given situation for correct, internal reasons rather than external motivators such as the fear of discipline.
  3. Empathy– to encourage the development of empathy and compassion, as it is essential in any relationship to be sensitive to the thoughts and feelings of others.

It cannot be overly-stressed that healthy relationships are the key to achieving these goals whether in individual therapy, day-to-day interactions with their staff and peers or contact in community.

Our treatment program is called the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Program. This acronym stands for  Supportive, Understanding, Compliant, Capable, Empathetic, Self-Confident and Successful.  We accept males age 13-18 who have difficult and delinquent behavior that necessitate treatment in a structured residential setting.  The average stay in the program is 18-24 months, but we are working on intensifying treatment as we transition from being a group home to a Short-Term Residential Therapeutic Program.  Youth will work though specific mental health issues in therapy as they work on developing appropriate behavior in the home setting.  The evidence based Thinking for a Change Curricula is used in group therapy with the youth to help them on the road to success.

Our mission is to enter the lives of people who are stuck, lost, or in need and help them find their own avenues to fulfillment. We call ourselves Ambassadors of Hope. To that end, our residential treatment provides Specialty Mental Health Services to its residents.  Youth participate in topic specific groups, social skills groups, individual therapy, individual rehabilitation services, and collateral/family therapy on a weekly basis.  We believe it is vitally important to work with families and support persons or entities of the youth in our care to give them the best chance for success.  For family not residing in Shasta County, we can provide on-line conferencing, phone calls and visits to establish healthy relationships.

The behavioral program uses a level system to continually encourage consumers to successfully progress through the program. It utilizes short, intermediate and long-term goals and centers around relational and social elements in order to motivate consumers to succeed.  The levels go from Level 1 through Level 4.  There is also a short-term disciplinary level called Grounding.

The levels are designed for structure and trust to be established and developed between consumer and staff, to promote independence, to move from restriction to freedom and from external motivation to an internal locus of control.  The aim is for the privileges and opportunities to increase as the consumer continues to make positive progress on whatever their issues may encompass. As they demonstrate proper communication, responsibility for their choices and behavior, and learn empathy, their freedoms, and opportunities increase.

Intensive Residential Treatment Program

Remi Vista has three homes in Redding serving children with developmental disabilities.  These homes help children who are struggling behaviorally to the point that they cannot stay at home with their families.  Our residential counselors work each day with the children to help them learn new ways to communicate their needs and develop the skills necessary to succeed at home and in their community.  We have two co-ed homes for youth that may stay with us through their 18th birthday, and we have an Intensive Crisis Home for youth who are in crisis and need to be stabilized in order to work on their behavior in a calm environment.

This home has 4 beds available for children and youth with severe behavioral and developmental needs.  Our goal in this short-term 60-90 day program is to help these youth discover and develop the self-control, communication skills, and other pro-social skills needed to return home or transition to a lower level of care, which may include one of our other long-term homes.  Residents receive intensive treatment to replace their harmful behavior with appropriate behavior.  If the goal for a client is to return home, then we work with the parents or guardians of the youth to develop a structured home environment where their child can thrive.

This home has five beds available to DD youth who are in need of long-term care.  These youth may be returning home or may transition out at age 18 to an adult facility or Supported Living Services program.  Community integration is an important aspect of the treatment at this house as it is our goal to help our youth assimilate into society as successfully as possible.  Youth in the program also receive 8 hours a month of mental health services to help them with any mental health needs they may have.

This home is a home for DD youth who have had some history with law-enforcement or are at-risk for this, but are not at a crisis point in their lives.  This four bed home can be a short-term or long-term depending upon the needs of the youth and their progress.  Some youth transition from this home to our strictly long-term home once their behaviors have subsided to the point of not being a risk to other in the home.
