Our first resident admissions occurred on August 5, 1996, with our Open House and Dedication Ceremony on September 12, 1996. Manitou Center is a 74 bed facility with four boys units and one Reception Orientation Center. Our Programs section is the first in the state to implement the Bethesda model facility-wide and the first 24 hour institutional setting in the United States to do so. An individual treatment plan, in combination with a phase system, is the basis of the Bethesda Program and is designed to provide rapid, clear and consistent behavioral feedback.
