Adriel has partnered with the Logan County Educational Service Center to create Adriel School. With a program designed to meet the unique needs of Adriel residential youth, the teachers and aides use the Teaching Family Model of care. Each student is expected to work to his or her capability. Students may receive credits toward a high school diploma. Read more about Adriel School.
During the summer months Adriel provides continued education through Title One funds while providing new experiences for the youth. Highly Qualified Teachers work daily to help youth to retain educational learning from the previous school year and to give students a head start into the upcoming school year. Activities include horseback riding, canoeing, nature/hiking, fishing, bible study, cooking, arts and crafts. Youth can earn trips which include Kings Island, Fort Rapid Water Park, Young’s Dairy, and bowling.
Therapeutic and Pharmacological Management Services
Masters level therapists provide individual, group and family (when indicated) psychotherapy services for youth in the residential program. A registered nurse and a psychiatrist provide pharmacological services when indicated. In addition, the nurse monitors the health concerns of youth.

Independent Living Training
Youth who are 16 years of age and older are given the Daniel Memorial Assessment. This is a systematic, competency-based approach to life skills training. This assessment focuses on 16 categories: Money Management, Community Resources, Legal Skills, Educational Planning, Housing, Personal Appearance, Job Seeking Skills, Housekeeping, Transportation, Interpersonal Skills, Emergency and Safety, Leisure Activities, Food Management, Health, Job Maintenance Skills, and Religion. From this assessment Adriel Teaching Parents and Case Managers then create detailed Treatment Plans to help youth further their knowledge in order for the youth to be successful once they reach independence.
