Residential & Educational Services

Essential Services for Promising Futures

Sweetser has created environments where children and youth can heal, learn, and grow. Our residential behavioral treatment centers and experiential learning programs are designed to help children at many different stages of development overcome unique challenges and strengthen their mental health.

  • Residential Treatment Services – We know families want to be together, and our residential treatment centers for mental health provide the intensive, out-of-home treatment youth experiencing mental or behavioral health difficulties need to return home.
  • Special Purpose Private Schools – Specialized educational environments where students have the supports they need to overcome learning, behavioral, and emotional impairments. And when they are ready to reintegrate into their school district, our specialized clinicians are with them every step of the way. Our students ages 12-18 in Saco benefit from our experiential learning program that provides an innovative pre-vocational opportunity to students who are better suited for active, hands-on learning experiences.
  • Day Treatment – Comprehensive family, individual, and group therapy and specialized education for students at Sweetser Schools in Belfast and Saco who are struggling to cope with serious emotional disturbances.
  • FOCUS Through Adventure – Custom-designed, hands-on educational and vocational experiences designed to get teens out of traditional classroom environments and engage them in hands-on learning.
