The Standing Rock (SR) Juvenile Detention/Youth Services Center is for the incarceration and rehabilitation of adjudicated juveniles from 12 years old to 17 years old. This is the first phase of a multi-phased approach and is for secure detention. The next phase is for day treatment and staff-secure residential housing for transition back into the community. It will meet the needs of the entire Standing Rock Sioux Indian Reservation. The Standing Rock Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Program will provide a continuum of services and care targeting high-risk juvenile offenders who cannot be safely maintained at home or in another less restrictive setting or who pose a risk of flight prior to adjudication. At-risk youth will be placed by the Standing Rock Children's Court in the JJDP Program for prevention, intervention, and after care services. The SR Youth Services Center will provide: 1) academic programming including GED and vocational education ; 2) counseling to eliminate suicide attempts within the facility and substantially reduce suicidal behaviors; 3) substance abuse evaluation, counseling, treatment, and after care for adjudicated and at'risk youth; 4) reduce delinquency and recidivism by combining detention with treatment to change the undesirable behaviors; and 5) coordinate intake screening & integrated case management plan.
