A youth’s conditions of supervised community placement may require him/her to attend a day treatment center.

These programs provide educational alternatives for youth between the ages of 12 and 17 whose behavior precludes participation in a regular school setting and who have usually been referred by the court or school system.

KY DJJ contracts with appropriate psychiatric hospitals/facilities to better meet the needs of youth who have been diagnosed as mentally ill or who display symptoms of mental illness.

To plan for effective delinquency prevention and early intervention, the family, school and community as a whole must be involved in addressing the problems.

The KY DJJ seeks to serve youth in the least restrictive, appropriate placement possible.

Upon being committed to KY DJJ, each youth is assigned to a Juvenile Services Worker (JSW). As part of the case management responsibilities, the JSW schedules a case planning conference or individual treatment planning (ITP) conference within 30 days of the date the youth enters an out-of-home placement, including placement with a relative other than the youth’s parent or guardian.

They emphasize treatment through individual, group, and family counseling.

KY DJJ operates six day treatment centers and contracts for the operation of 20 additional programs.

Day treatment centers are organized around a normal classroom schedule, with highly individualized instruction.The least restrictive form of placement for committed or probated youth is supervised community placement (placement with the youth’s own relatives)--this may include placement with the parent or guardian with whom the youth was previously residing.In recommending placement of a youth with a relative, the desires of the natural parents are generally considered.Additional services that may be offered or required as a part of the youth’s conditions of supervised community placement include health services, mental health services, intensive family preservation services, electronic monitoring, day reporting centers, Impact Plus services, parent training, and educational/vocational planning.Youth whose needs may be best met in the community but who require more intensive supervision may come under the care of a Juvenile Intensive Supervision Team (JIST).
