Clinical staffing at Vista is substantial. Each of our full-time therapists carries a small caseload of 8-10 students each, an impressive ratio when compared to the larger individual caseloads generally available at other programs. Vista’s full time psychiatrist meets with every student on a weekly basis and actively participates in treatment team meetings to allow for cohesion and team support in decisions regarding medication needs. This high level of clinical support is what enables Vista to go above and beyond industry norms.
Each student on campus is part of a supervised peer group that has immediate staff support 24 hours a day. Whether your son is waking up and preparing for classes, having lunch with the group, or enjoying an off-campus recreational activity, he will have supervision and mentoring available through our milieu counselors who also help to maintain a safe and comfortable environment.
