Children and Youth Services
Located within the Options Unlimited – Mexico, MO facility located at 400 East Liberty, Mexico, MO.
Arthur Center Youth Services are designed for families who need a little more support than is typical while their young family member receives treatment.
Each family partners with the Youth Services Team to build a network of family supports that centers on the real needs of their family. The family support team works together in developing a plan that is practical, flexible and will identify needed supports to help reduce symptoms and improve overall family well being.
Arthur Center Youth Services staff are professionals in the fields of psychology, sociology, counseling, social work, or a closely related field of study.
