Zumbro House is a therapeutic community that offers a seamless system of behavioral supports that will address each client's specific behavioral needs through individualized programming. A comprehensive assessment is performed upon admission for every client, so that intervention recommendations may be presented to the team based on the determined function of the target behavior(s). In addition to individualized treatment programs, Zumbro House maintains a structured environment in which the safety of the client and others is ensured through vigilant supervision. The provision of a safe and therapeutic environment that rewards and encourages more adaptive behavior is instrumental in helping our clients succeed in the community.
Person Centered Planning is the backbone of our program. Rather than shaping the person to fit the environment, we shape the environment to fit the person. Operating under the assumption that no behavior is arbitrary and that there is a purpose behind every human action, it's first important to look at the internal and external factors that may be driving the behavior. Once this is accomplished, through various quantitative and qualitative data collection mechanisms, we are in a position to employ environmental manipulations or medical interventions that will help curb maladaptive behaviors.
Allowing individuals to maintain their community-based status promotes the concept of inclusion, integration and self-determination, which is our primary goal.
