Employment Opportunities

There are three residential programs located on the facility grounds: Adult Services, a Sex Offender Treatment Program (SOTP), and Children/Youth Services.

All residential programs offer a comprehensive range of services including individual and group counseling, diagnostic evaluation, psychological testing, crisis intervention, psychopharmacology, medical evaluation, vocational assessment, education, socialization, task and skill training, physical therapy, structured learning therapy, occupational therapy, and recreational therapy. In addition, weight rooms, a recipient resource center, a snack bar, and community programs are available.

Outpatient Clinics, offering diagnostic assessment, individual/group treatment, medication therapy, case management, crisis services, are available to both adults and children/youth in major population centers within St. Lawrence County (Ogdensburg, Massena, Gouverneur). Day Treatment programs for Children/Youth, in collaboration with B.O.C.E.S., are also offered to St. Lawrence County residents in Ogdensburg and Potsdam; and to Jefferson County Children/Youth in Watertown.

Outpatient residential programs are also operated by the psychiatric center through the on-grounds Community Residence (Northwood Manor) and the Family Care Program, a network of certified private homes located in St. Lawrence, Jefferson and Clinton counties.

In addition to its inpatient and outpatient programs, SLPC has a new, state of the art, Sex Offender Treatment Program (SOTP) that will expand to an 80 bed capacity by the end of 2008. The SOTP's mission is to balance individual treatment needs and community safety. The treatment model promotes positive changes for individuals participating in the program in an effort to reduce the risk of future sexual re-offense.

Self-Help and Advocacy services are provided through a local consumer-run organization, "STEP by STEP, Inc." A Bridger program provides link to STEP by STEP for adult recipients.
