DYS offers a variety of community-based alternative placement options to meet the unique needs of youth committed to the department. These safe, supportive environments provide the treatment and services youth need to become responsible young men and women.
All females admitted to DYS receive intake services and assessment at Center for Adolescent Services (CAS) of Montgomery County, which has 15 beds dedicated to DYS. To meet the mental health needs of the female population while maintaining community safety, DYS also contracts with mental health treatment providers.
Lighthouse Youth Center at Paint Creek serves as an alternative placement option for boys committed to DYS.
