About Our Group Homes

Learn about our group home options at Millcreek of Magee Treatment Center in Mississippi

Some children or adolescents have needs that cannot be met through community resources. Additionally, some youth are not able to reside at home or participate in other treatment programs, as they may require more ongoing treatment in order to function. Millcreek of Magee, a behavioral disorders treatment facility in Mississippi, understands that some adolescents and young adults require such care, which is why we have designed beneficial programs at our facility that are delivered in therapeutic group homes.

The therapeutic group homes at the treatment facility Millcreek of Magee allow male adolescents and young adults between the ages of 12 and 21 to thrive with our treatment programs so that they are able to successfully reintegrate back into their respective communities. With three locations, Brookhaven, Raleigh, and Natchez, and ten licensed beds in each home, young men who reside in our therapeutic group homes have access to qualified, experienced, and compassionate staff at our treatment facility 24/7, who can provide invaluable support on an ongoing basis.

Specialized Programming

Those in our therapeutic group homes participate in the following programs while engaging in this type of service:

Education programs: Recognizing the importance of education, those in our treatment facility’s therapeutic group homes are able to participate in educational programs.

Our facility provides this so as to develop and enhance occupational skills, which can improve functioning and increase independence once these individuals return to their communities. Our treatment facility will also help these youth find jobs within the community when that is an appropriate and viable option.

Community-based programs: A big part of being able to successfully reintegrate back into one’s community has to do with being able to function well in community settings. Because of this, we afford male adolescents and young adults with opportunities for community-based programs so that social skills can be improved.

Furthermore, while young men partake in the above opportunities and programs at our treatment center, they also engage in a number of cognitive-behavioral-based therapeutic programs as they reside in our facility’s therapeutic group homes.
