Thomaston Group Home is a five-bed group home that provides treatment for adolescent males ages 13 to 20 with developmental disabilities and co-occurring psychiatric disorders. The home and its staff provide 24-hour supervision, clinical services, and unconditional support in an environment that allows for individualized treatment and subsequent planning.
Thomaston honors and appreciates that each young man is unique, and focuses on strengths while facilitating independence, allowing each youth to succeed at his own pace and comfort level while encouraging integration within the community. The staff are specifically trained to work with the young men utilizing a relational approach which fosters healing and promotes skill building. Skill development includes, but is not limited to, emotional self-regulation, activities of daily living and fostering a talent or trade. Treatment goals are achieved through on-going service plans that address educational, family, cultural, spiritual and social needs. Each resident’s family is encouraged to be active in all treatment planning and to maintain an integral role in the life of their child.
