Therapeutic School Program

Therapeutic School Program

River Oaks Hospital is now an affiliate site for the Special School Programs (SSP) for the Louisiana Department of Education, with year-round schooling for those on the Adolescent Unit. This feature is especially important for those 17 and under who are court ordered/judicially admitted and may require competency restoration.

The individualized education children and adolescents receive from our certified teachers and paraeducators is hard to find in a typical school system. Children and adolescents will not be classified as absent from their regular school while receiving treatment at River Oaks. While in our program, they learn skills to incorporate the daily stressors of school into their treatment to minimize the risk of re-hospitalization.
