Viewpoint Center

ViewPoint Center is a comprehensive, highly specialized therapeutic stabilization, assessment, diagnosis, and treatment facility for teens ages 12-18.

ViewPoint is a small, intimate, personalized facility offering unparalleled diagnostic assessment and medical care.

Our goal is to help our struggling clients receive a more accurate and comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan.  Unlike larger psychiatric hospitals, ViewPoint assesses, diagnoses, treats, and then reassesses the diagnosis and treatment plan. For clients struggling with addiction, ViewPoint Center offers detox treatment.

Viewing the client from all aspects, working closely with families and utilizing the same psychiatric and medical team enables us to refine the diagnosis and provide a better path for future success.

By combining intensive therapy, psychiatric care and 24 /7 medical care, clients receive individual, group, family, and medical consultations throughout the week.

The diagnostic profile includes the full continuum of mental health disorders achieved via psychotherapy, psychological testing, classroom assessments, therapeutic milieu, and psychiatric stabilization.

At the end of their time with ViewPoint each family is provided a comprehensive multi-disciplinary report which captures both a well fleshed out diagnosis as well as clearly defined recommendations for future treatment.

Judith Jacques
Executive Director - Elevations RTC, ViewPoint Center

Feeling frustrated by the systemic constraints to affect real change in the lives of adolescents in the public school system, she was on the verge of leaving education altogether. Fortunately, Judith was offered a role as a teacher in a residential treatment center and found a renewed interest in working with students in an environment where students and their needs are a priority.  Judith spent the next 2 years as a teacher, then 10 years as an academic director before moving into operations of a residential treatment center as a program director. She was one of the original founders of Elevations RTC and ViewPoint Center.

Judith loves to spend her time with her family, practicing yoga, and continuing to explore her passion for history.  She combines her passions of travel and history into trips to explore historical sites and examination of the past and how we learn from one another. Judith’s passions have helped shape her personal philosophy and approach in working within a residential treatment setting.

Education – BS in Education from Millersville University of Pennsylvania , MEd in Special Education from Westminister College.

Learning is a social and emotional activity.  If students are not socially and emotionally available little change can be expected in the classroom or at home.  We have to meet them where they are and start with helping them to be open to change.
