Programs | Crittenton Services, Inc.
For more than a century, the cornerstone of Crittenton Services has been our residential program for girls between the ages of 12 and 18. Established in 1895 as a
home for unwed mothers, we continue to provide the only licensed residential mother/infant and maternity care for teenagers in West Virginia.
Today, however, maternity care is but one aspect of our program's gender-responsive treatment. We also offer comprehensive behavioral health treatment that recognizes
and responds to the unique needs, challenges and strengths of girls and women.
Crittenton Residential Program
This gender-responsive Residential Treatment Program is available to young women, ages 12 - 18, who meet criteria for Level II Residential Treatment Services. As the
only licensed maternity care facility in West Virginia, we prioritize girls who are pregnant or parenting, but almost a third of our treatment population are not. A
treatment team of professionals work with the girls to develop a strength-based treatment plan. Features include a cottage-type living environment with 24-hour
supervision, an on-site alternative school, an in-house medical clinic, an on-site developmental day care for infants and toddlers, recreational and therapeutic
interventions, group therapy sessions, addiction and substance abuse counseling, life skills development and maternity/parenting education.

Crittenton Intensive Educational & Outpatient Treatment Program
This gender-responsive treatment is available to adolescent females who are experiencing problems at home, in their schools or within their communities. Programs
cover a wide variety of individual issues, including substance abuse, anger management, self awareness and dealing with trauma. The goal of the Intensive Outpatient
Program is to offer an educational environment that will not only meet the academic needs of young women, but also teach and model adaptive pro-social behaviors to
achieve optimal self-sufficiency, competency and academic success.

Cradles to Crayons
This innovative "discovery skills" program offers assessments of both infant's and toddler's social, emotional, physical and cognitive development. Planned
activities directed by a caregiver allow the child to learn and achieve knowledge at his/her own rate and method. Children may explore, discover and evaluate,
contributing to independent thinking, accomplishment, problem solving and environmental awareness. Before and after care programs are also available.
