The Stabilization Assessment Program


The Stabilization Assessment Program is a national, short-term (45-60 days), campus-based, trauma-informed assessment program that provides access to functional capacity, psychological, mental health, occupational therapy, art therapy and cognitive assessments for children (12-17 years) and their families.

A short-term assessment placement is provided to asses for mental health treatment needs, functioning capacity, trauma history, placement recommendations, as well as long-term family and community support needs.

During the assessment period, the program helps youth stabilize their risk behaviour by exploring triggering events, and practicing emotional and behavioural management skills. We work alongside families, caregivers and support networks to share practical parenting strategies and foster a deeper understanding of the impact trauma has on adolescent development.


The Stabilization Assessment Program provides:

  • 24-hour supervision and milieu treatment
  • 24-hour crisis support for children on site and their families in the Calgary community
  • A comprehensive functional assessment
  • Access to specialized assessments including occupational therapy, psychological, cognitive, psycho-educational, speech and language, art therapy, sexual behaviour risk assessment, etc. (at an additional cost)
  • Individual and family therapeutic services specifically tailored to the needs of the child and family

  • Access to Wood’s Homes Multi-Sensory Room
