The primary focus of Becket’s Adult programs in New Hampshire is in fostering the clients’ ability to become autonomous, competent, and connected with others across all areas of their functioning. Becket Adult ITS residential programs serve individuals aged 21 years old and over who have been identified as high risk-high need. Typically, these individuals have experienced considerable adversity and traumatic experiences in their lives.
The individuals we serve have challenging behaviors including problematic sexual behaviors, forensic involvement, fire setting behaviors, and situational aggressive behaviors towards others and/or property.
Each program challenges and assists each individual to become more productive and active members of their community. Becket offers onsite services and supports provided by highly trained staff. This includes an array of services to enhance the quality of life for each person served. Individualized clinical and behavioral treatment; counseling services; independent living skill development; vocational/educational skill development; and relationship-oriented coaching, mentoring, and teaching are the staples offered at this program. Further, staff-facilitated groups emphasizing self-care and social skills serve as a platform for our more specialized treatment services.
