It is built on theoretical and research advances in the treatment and rehabilitation of juvenile justice clients, as well as feedback over the past seven years from PSDC counselees, treatment providers, and program administrators.SAGE offers treatment and training programs for mental health providers that you can easily incorporate into your existing programs.
