The TASC Unit is a secure residential treatment program devoted to helping youth who are dealing with the most severe emotional, behavioral and psychiatric symptoms. These youth suffer from severe abuse, neglect, and trauma and often present as a danger to self or others. These youth have typically experienced failed previous placements and/or hospitalization and are not manageable or safe in the home, foster home, staff secure residential facility or other less restrictive environment. The TASC Unit offers a highly structured, secure environment with increased security measures and individual bedrooms. Educational services are provided within the unit through an accredited school program operated by Muncie Community Schools. Youth may be placed in the TASC program for acute stabilization of their symptoms or to achieve stability and begin the process of addressing chronic treatment issues.
