Treatment and Support for Behavior and Esteem Issues
Braley & Thompson has served West Virginia and Virginia residents for over 35 years. We offer a respectable and warm environment for all individuals to receive support and assistance with a variety of issues and problems. We treat children, adolescents, and adults for behavior and esteem issues that have resulted from traumatic life experiences and offer an extensive variety of treatment options and programs to address each individual’s needs. Our treatment modalities allow for positive growth and development in the community, coupled with close supervision, therapy, and support.
Respect and Care to Assist with Achieving Life Goals
We are professional ResCare providers. ResCare is “respect” and “care.” Our goal is to assist people to reach their highest level of independence while providing the respectful care and support to assist our clients with achieving their personal and life goals. As a result of the success that we have experienced and respect that we have earned for the services we provide throughout Virginia, Braley & Thompson was purchased by ResCare in 2007. Braley & Thompson is proud to now be part of one of the nation’s most recognized and respected healthcare syndicates, with significant expertise, resources, and representation amongst healthcare and human services organizations across the country.
Kids in Focus Assessment, Treatment, Mentoring and Educational Support
Kids in Focus is a full service diagnostic assessment program offering quality care in a home-like setting for children who are facing significant difficulties. We provide a one-stop, complete evaluation. Our partnerships with our kids, their caregivers, and all local support agencies enable us to provide therapeutic treatment and mentoring, as well as prescriptive educational support. Kids in Focus is licensed by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) and the Virginia Department of Education.
We Offer Evidence-Based Trauma Informed Care and Treatment
All of the Braley & Thompson staff, as well as our foster parents, are trained in the ARC (Attachment, Regulation, and Competency) model of evidence-based trauma informed treatment. Our staff members are regularly provided with ongoing training in this model for all levels of treatment services that ResCare provides.
