WHO WE ARE
Gateway Residential Services (GRS) operates a RCCF (Residential Child Care Facility) program that provides mental health treatment to male youth. GRS programs specialize in working with youth who have complex clinical issues. Gateway Residential Program – is a designated provider with the Office of Behavioral Health and licensed by the Colorado Department of Human Services for ages 12-21.
Gateway Residential Services embraces the belief that in order to promote change, a relationship-driven program that effectively addresses the components of safety, emotional management, loss and future planning is imperative to the successful transition of the client.
The Clinical Department provides individual, group, and family therapy services designed and tailored around the individual needs of the client. We approach treatment in gender-specific and strength-based programming, trauma-informed care, offense-specific treatment, and experiential therapies. Each client’s treatment is designed to identify and address risk factors of abusive behavior and protective strengths on which to build upon.
Aggressive behaviors are addressed by utilizing the Aggression Replacement Training Curriculum.
Criminal Thinking is addressed by utilizing the Thinking for a Change group Curriculum.
Offense-Specific Programming is conducted in compliance with all Colorado Sex Offender Management guidelines and modalities.
Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports used at the facility and school.
The Education Program provides each student a challenging, academically sound educational experience to remediate, maintain and/or improve academic and social functioning. The education program utilizes a research-based curriculum facilitated by DeltaCounty School District 50J. A District provided teacher and a Gateway Residential Services staff provide instruction for students requiring a more structured classroom setting that address the behavioral issues, academic needs, and individualized circumstances that interfere with learning in a traditional classroom. Students have the opportunity to earn credit towards their high school diploma through classroom work and credit recovery programming.
Our education program works closely with the local school district in order to provide opportunities for students to attend public school as appropriate. Our post-secondary students have the opportunity to attend on/off-site college classes.
