Secure Residential Mental Health Services

Catholic Charities Intensive Treatment Cottage at the St. Cloud Children's Home is a secure inpatient residential treatment facility for stuggling male and female adolescents, age 12-18. Both the facility and the services are specifically designed to safely serve residents who have not experienced success in less restrictive environments.

At Catholic Charities, we don't often recommend secure treatment for a young person because they are a danger to others, we recommend secure treatment because the young person is a danger to themselves.

Our Intensive Treatment Cotttage is statte-of-the-art, built specifically with visual supervision of residents in mind. Residents are monitored very closely; to this end, this unit has a higher staff to student ratios than any of Catholic Charities open residential units.

In order to provide the highest level of safety, residents are kept active with a variety of events to participate in. The milieu space is simple and thorough in providing safety to our residents and staff.  

While residents are at a secure unit for mental health treatment, their safety is our top concern. 
Our services include: 
  • Fully secure unit to safely serve those with higher security needs
  • Increased staffing allows for more immediate and frequent therapeutic interactions
  • On-site school staffed with special education teachers
  • A larger clinical team available as consultants including:
    • Psychiatric Consultation
    • Health Services
    • Chemical Awareness and Support Services
    • Chaplain
    • Vocational Experiences
Services that are part of our specialized programming include:
  • Addiction Awareness
  • Independent Skills Development
  • Gardening Skills Program (Cultivating Youth)
  • On-site school in cooperation with Independent School District #742
  • Vocational Work Experience
  • Youth Ministry/Chaplaincy
  • Dog Agility
  • AA and NA Meetings
  • Kids of Color Group
  • Color Outside the Lines Group
