Phoenix Day Treatment School

The Bethany Black Hawk Phoenix Day Treatment Program offers special education services, case management services, and interventions to area youth who are at risk of disrupting from their homes of origin and being placed in a residential setting. Treatment is based on each student’s individualized educational plan (IEP). The Phoenix Day Treatment Program assists students between the ages of 11 and 22 who have demonstrated severe behavioral and emotional problems and who have been unsuccessful in their home school districts. The program is run by Bethany for Children & Families and the Black Hawk Area Special Education District (BHASED).

Bethany for Children & Families provides extensive individual and family counseling to participants of the Phoenix Program. Family counseling can take place in the home and outside of traditional school hours if necessary. The Phoenix Program also maintains a strong emphasis on case coordination through maintenance of relationships with mental health systems, private agencies, DCFS, court, probation, and parole. A great deal of effort is put into treatment planning with these agencies as needed and community services as indicated in order to support the best possible outcomes for Phoenix students.

The Phoenix Program successfully maintains over 90% of placed students in their homes and in the local community. Through a combination of specialized educational services and extensive counseling and therapeutic supports, the graduation rate for freshman is 85% after 4 to 5 years, which is well above the usual rate graduation rate of 40% to 50% cited by most research of behavior day treatment programs. A core special education curriculum of academics adjusted to individual student needs as well as a strong emphasis on social skills training is presented by dedicated and skilled special education teams of teachers, paraprofessionals, and social work/counseling staff.
