Find the right program for your child





How do I get my son/daughter admitted?
How much does it cost?
Cost depends on factors such as how your child is referred to Nexus and how long he/she needs treatment. Your Admissions Coordinator can help you determine costs and finances.

Do you provide transportation for youth admitted to a Nexus treatment site?
Transportation arrangements can be made by contacting your Admissions Coordinator. In many cases, Nexus will send a representative to meet your child and accompany him/her to a Nexus treatment site.
Do you accept out-of-state admissions to Nexus treatment sites?
Yes. Contact your Admissions Coordinator to discuss treatment options and determine the best site for your child.
How long will my son/daughter be in treatment?
When your child arrives at a Nexus treatment site, he/she will be evaluated and an individualized treatment plan created for him/her. As your child progresses through treatment, that plan may be revised.
My child is in a Nexus foster care program. What can I expect?
The goal of all Nexus foster care programs is reunification with the family of origin when possible, and permanency planning when returning to home is not possible. Your social worker will determine what is best for your youth and family. Many times, foster families will work with a youth’s parents to build skills and communication techniques.
Will I be involved in my child's treatment?
Family participation is vital to your child's success. Nexus programs use individual, group, and family therapy in treatment. You will meet with your child's therapist to determine a meetings schedule.

Can I visit my child while he/she's in treatment?
Your child's therapist will advise you on visiting your child while he/she is in treatment. Visits are encouraged for family therapy and meetings. If distance is an issue, Nexus will provide you with free meal assistance, calling cards, and web-conferencing capability and equipment to help you stay in touch with your child. Travel and lodging assistance are available to families, dependent upon need.

Will my child attend school during treatment?
All Nexus locations offer an on-site, year-round, fully licensed school for youth in treatment.
What will my child's life be like in treatment?
Each Nexus treatment location offers a unique, home-like setting. Students live, eat, exercise, and go to school on campus. They build relationships with counselors, teachers, and other students, and they attend individual, group, and family therapy to face their unique challenges. Progress is tracked through stages and may continue after treatment in a follow-up care program.
I'm interested in being a foster parent. How can I find out more?
You can contact any of the Nexus foster care agencies to learn more about becoming a foster parent.

Contact Woodbourne Center (MD) here.
What happens after treatment?
When your child completes Nexus treatment, we'll still be here to help. We provide aftercare services including ongoing support, referrals to other treatment providers, specialized foster care, and in-home counseling services, as needed.
