Youth Homes’ Counseling Center offers therapy services to youth up to age 21 and their family members. The Counseling Center features two convenient locations, one at our Ross Campus in Johnston, Iowa, and one in Adel, Iowa.

The Counseling Center’s purpose is to provide assessments and appropriate behavioral health therapy services to youth and their families dealing with a mental health diagnosis. Treatment can assist troubled youth to address emotions, behaviors and functioning issues in their daily lives, assisting them on their path to independence.

The Counseling Center’s programs include therapy services (including assessment, individual, family and group therapy), mental health services, community based wraparound, behavioral health intervention services and family support. Learn more about each program below.
