The Robert N. Barnes Regional Juvenile Facility treatment philosophy is based on a comprehensive and integrated therapeutic system. This system focuses on the behavioral, educational and counseling needs of each resident. An individual Treatment Plan will address both the needs of the residents and the family support system. The treatment plan is a combined approach involving casework, individual and group counseling, specialized treatment, education, and behavior management techniques.
The Robert N. Barnes Regional Juvenile Facility strongly believes in the multi-agency delivery of services approach. This becomes an integral part of the treatment plan. The design is to perpetuate and establish positive relationships with juveniles, families, and the community. Texas Juvenile Justice Department (TJJD) standards for the Secure Post Adjudication Facilities is used to operate the facility.
