St. Clair County Day Program #206
St. Clair County Day Program is an innovative Alabama State Department of Youth Services day treatment center for seventy-five (75) adolescents age 11-18. The primary mission of the program is to reduce juvenile crime in the county and prevent high-risk adolescents having further involvement with the Juvenile Justice System. The Day Program provides a positive, cost-effective alternative to incarceration, residential treatment, and/or hospitalization. During 1998, a group of concerned citizens in St. Clair County met to discuss the problem of juvenile crime. Headed by Juvenile Court Judge Jim Hill, a committee was formed to investigate ways to decrease juvenile delinquency. A plan to develop a day treatment program for high-risk adolescents and their families resulted. The program would provide direct services including academic remediation, GED preparation, individual, group, and family counseling. The counseling services would address issues such as mental health, alcohol/substance abuse, and prevention. On January 5, 1999, St. Clair County Day Program, Inc. began receiving male and female youth.
