Located in the Historic District of Swansea, Massachusetts, Stevens Treatment Programs provides comprehensive services to adolescent boys who require the safety and consistency of our residential treatment program. Stevens is a private, non-profit corporation. Programs include a Chapter 766-approved Special Education School, a licensed Residential Treatment Center and a campus-based Intensive Treatment Residence. The Transitional Living Program in Fall River, Massachusetts serves up to 8 DCF-involved youth within this community-based group home.

Overview of Programs & Services

Stevens serves adolescent males whose behavioral and emotional needs cannot adequately be met within home and community. Youth served by Stevens require a comprehensive treatment program tailored to address their needs. Our programs provide structured, therapeutic environments that are safe and secure. The Attachment, Regulation and Competence (ARC) trauma-informed model provides the framework for services provided by Stevens. Our trauma-informed, strengths-based approach supports youth by teaching them individualized skills to succeed at home, in school, and in their community; to make positive life choices; and develop healthy, life-long relationships.
