Starr Albion Prep was founded in 1913 as a refuge for homeless, dependent, neglected and delinquent boys. Located in Albion, MI, our residential treatment services represent the international standard of excellence in identifying, treating and healing trauma and pain-based behavior and building resiliency in children and adolescents.
Programs & Services Offered
The Traditional Residential Treatment Program serves at-risk and delinquent males ages 12-18. The program develops interpersonal problem-solving and cooperative-learning skills in a therapeutic group setting. The length of stay in the program varies by individual treatment needs. With strength-based practices, we help young men identify their strengths and capitalize on those abilities.
The Substance Abuse Treatment Program helps young men, ages 12-18, address issues related to their substance abuse by building upon and redirecting their strengths into constructive behaviors. Using The Seven Challenges substance abuse treatment model, our trained staff help the young men understand how their behavior affects others, and how they can successfully return or remain in their homes, schools and communities. Youth placed in our residential substance abuse program have experienced court involvement and require a higher level of structure and security than a community-based program can adequately provide. Albion Academy's Substance Abuse Treatment is a 90-day residential treatment program.
Sexually Reactive Youth
The Sexually Reactive Youth Program addresses the needs of young men, ages 12-18, who have sexually offended and are at moderate to high risk to reoffend. The length of the program varies depending on individual treatment needs. Group therapy allows young men to interact with other teens facing the same issues and helps them learn to take responsibility for their actions. Using a strength-based treatment philosophy, we help young men develop new values that guide their behavior for the long run.
