Attachment-Oriented, Trauma-Informed and Developmentally Sensitive Treatment

Stetson School is a nationally accredited, fully licensed, Chapter 766-approved Residential and Education Treatment Program for male youth and young adults, ages 9-22, with sexually problematic behaviors, complex developmental difficulties, chronic mental illness, and autism spectrum disorders, who have suffered from severe trauma. Recognized as a national leader in the treatment of sexually troubled behavior, Stetson School offers a continuum of supports and services to the high-risk population with a family-focused, individualized “culture of recovery.” 

At Stetson School, our highly-qualified staff of educators and clinicians provide supports that speak to an individual's entire mental health and developmental needs. Our goal is to provide tools that can be used throughout a lifetime. Stetson School fosters empathy and a strong alliance between our treatment team and educators, the child and the family to ensure success. Our focus centers on strength-based and culturally sensitive services with the goal of supporting family stability, successful reunification and permanency. Our flexible program options specialize in safety through quality assessment and individualized treatment plans, which work toward a safe return to the community.

Our beautiful country setting provides a therapeutic, safe and secure placement for young men which promotes accountability and healing. At Stetson School, we believe that every child deserves the opportunity to become a confident, capable adult, and a productive member of the community.
