Bradley County Behavioral Unit
Day Treatment Center
The Day Treatment Center was created to provide local elementary schools with and outside resource to intervene in situations where children are exhibiting behavior problems and consistently disrupt the learning environment.
While at the center, the student is closely supervised in a very structured environment and follows a curriculum provided by the local school system.
This service is housed at the Bradley County Juvenile Center and follows the schedule and Code of Conduct of the Bradley County Schools.
