Intensive Treatment


Vista Del Mar offers a continuum of exceptional intensive treatment intervention programs for children and adolescents including residential treatment, Wraparound Services, and Intensive Treatment Foster Care.

Residential Treatment


Our residential treatment programs are for youth ages 12-18 whose emotional and behavioral difficulties are impeding their ability to succeed in their current setting.

We provide an individualized, holistic treatment approach where psychological, spiritual, social, and educational needs are assessed and addressed through a relationship model focused on engaging youth in a validating, supportive, and nonjudgmental manner. We implement a Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) based approach which is a cognitive behavioral treatment intervention assisting youth with managing their behaviors. We offer an open residential unit along with a locked Community Treatment Facility.

Through our therapeutic approach, teens are assisted with identifying effective solutions for their problems which enable them to safely and successfully return to their families, schools, and community.

Please see brochure for additional information.

Intensive Treatment
Foster Care


Intensive Treatment Foster Care (ITFC) was created for youth in the foster system who have a greater need for therapeutic and social work services due to heightened emotional or behavioral issues. The program serves as an alternative to institutional care by assisting children and youth in a home setting.

Along with Vista’s team of social workers, therapists, and in-home support staff, ITFC Foster Parents play a vital role in the child’s treatment. ITFC Foster Parents participate in monthly meetings, home visits, and receive a monthly reimbursement of $2200 a month (tax free).

The Multidisciplinary Assessment Team (MAT) is an assessment and linkage program of children legally detained by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) due to issues of abuse and/or neglect.

MAT is funded by the Department of Mental Health and provides an in-depth psychosocial and mental health assessment that identifies needs, strengths, resources, and barriers in the child and family’s life. A conference is then held with all of the people in that child’s life followed by linkage services to address the areas of need.
