Reflections Day Treatment Center Program Evaluation

The SANDAG evaluation of the Reflections program included a process evaluation to determine if the program was implemented as designed, as well as an impact assessment to measure the effects of the program on individual behavior of targeted youth, siblings, and parent(s), family functioning, and recidivism (i.e, subsequent delinquency of targeted youth and siblings).

The San Diego County Probation Department's Reflections Program targets those youth and families where at least one child is at risk of being removed from the home. The high need for such local treatment alternatives is demonstrated by the large numbers of youth waiting for placement in correctional or private placement facilities and foster homes.
