Woodland Hills: Juvenile Justice Services
When an adolescent is acting out, it is sometimes easier to focus actions, instead of the why.
For decades, we have been known as a leader in the field of juvenile rehabilitation and helping youth redirect their path to a successful future. Today, we use trauma informed practices to meet the needs of youth through residential program options designed for boys and girls ages 12–18 (up through age 21 under Extended Juvenile Jurisdiction).
