Outpatient Behavioral Health Services

Outpatient Behavioral Health Services programs provide counseling to at-risk and high-risk youth and their families, and include the Youth Counseling Center and the Community At-Risk Services (CARS). The Youth Counseling Center has been offering assessment, crisis intervention, individual, family and group counseling, referral and follow-up services for community youth since 1972. The CARS program is designed for delinquent and pre-delinquent youth already involved with the juvenile court. Services include individual, family and group counseling, educational advocacy and paraprofessional services, such as mentoring and tutoring, to meet the needs of the youth and their families.


First-Time Offender Program

The Skills Education Program (SEP) is a state sponsored and funded delinquency prevention and early intervention program for first-time youthful offenders.

The intent of the program is to provide a consequence for the youth's behavior and offer life skills education to the parents and their child to improve their communication, relationships, resolution of family problems by learning to make win-win decisions.

Parents and children are referred by courts and are mandated to attend 16 hours of classes. At Youth Services we offer the classes in eight (8) two-hour segments two-evening a week over a four-week period. The SEP curriculum was adapted to include the Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program (PREP), a widely researched program used to teach communication and relationship skills. Classes are offered in English and Spanish.


Community Intervention Center

In partnership with Oklahoma City and the Oklahoma Office of Juvenile Affairs, the CIC is a 24-hour juvenile processing and intervention center for youth arrested in Oklahoma County. By experiencing several consequences, such as booking, digital photography and fingerprinting, the youth get a glimpse of the realities of the juvenile justice system. The CIC also efficiently aids in getting the youth back to their parents as soon as possible, while allowing the police officers to quickly return to their duties.


JROC

JROC, which stands for Juvenile Re-entry of Oklahoma County, is a program that works with delinquent teens and their families. It began in December 2008 and was created through the cooperation of the Office of Juvenile Affairs and YSOC Inc., to build a program that would meet the needs for high risk youths. The goals of the program are to increase a youth's chance for successful integration into the community and to become a productive member of society.
