Seventh Avenue Emergency Stabilization and Assessment Center

 

Seventh Avenue Emergency Stabilization and Assessment Center serves youth in the custody of the State of Alaska as well as youth in custody of their families. Youth can also bring themselves to Seventh Avenue if they need a safe place to stay. Youth come to Seventh Avenue Emergency Stabilization and Assessment Center for many different reasons and because of this, the staff strives to work with each person and their family individually. Some youth may stay for several weeks and others for only a few days or hours.

The program is welcoming and supportive of all youth, no matter why they are here. Families may also need a "time-out," and this is a common reason for a placement. The program has full-time clinical staff that provides assessment and group therapy as well as individual therapy. The staff works closely with families. Mediation services are provided as well as treatment team meetings. The shelter also regularly provides services to youth waiting placement in other PHH programs as an assessment, safety and stabilization for youth between placements.

Seventh Avenue Emergency Stabilization and Assessment Center is a coed level @ emergency shelter program, providing behavioral rehabilitation services to three youth ages 12-18 with a staff client ratio of 1:5. Two community beds are currently unfunded.
