Level II Therapeutic Residential

Our Services Offer Level II Therapeutic Residential and Behavioral Health Counseling

The Level II Therapeutic Residential services are for those who need a home-like atmosphere with individual or group care. Legal guardians still have full custody of those who are admitted. North Carolina has changed its child welfare rules, so childcare facilities took a reconstructed facelift. Level II Therapeutic Residential aims to assist male children between 12-18. The residential stay resembles a home environment, educational, and mental health diagnosis, which explains the reasons for unacceptable behaviors in the social department. Children within the areas of home life, school, or any environment who face these challenges have to go through the services provided, and Medicaid covers the cost. There must be referrals before anyone is accepted. The Care Coordination Team at Cardinal Innovations, other clinical homes, the Department of Social Services, and the family or guardians all have to agree to a short term stay for the patient. The client will remain until they can cope with society and reunite with their family or guardians.


Behavioral health counseling is available for those who struggle with mental health issues, developmental or disability needs, and substance abuse. Services provided in this department are one on one with psychologists, licensed social workers, physicians, and professional counselors. Attitudes and mood swings are common among teenagers since their minds and bodies are going through all the growing pains. If there is something causing problems in mental development, we can help diagnose and fix the issues or challenges faced. If caught early enough, the problems will not be as challenging to overcome. It is not just for kids. They have family and marriage counseling, psychological evaluation, therapy for those with mental health disorders, treatment for addiction, outpatient programs for substance abuse, and medicated-assisted therapy. Many older children tend to have anger issues, which we address as well in treatment. It usually is the circumstances they are facing, but other times it is a bi-polar disorder.
