Psychotherapy and substance abuse services are provided by our in-house Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor-Intern that provides treatment services under the Texas Juvenile Justice Department Chapter 353 Substance Use Standards.
All cadets also have access to Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, which is an evidence based model that provides the cadet and family skills to cope with relationships, progress safely in the community, use positive life skills, and improve overall emotional and physical well-being.
Cadets also attend school throughout the day, which requires the cadet to be classified as 8th grade or above, and will be supported by San Benito CISD. This also includes a GED component for those eligible. Cadets also receive building trades skills and OSHA safety training as part of the San Benito CISD CATE vocational training.
Cadets at the Boot Camp are also involved in the Cadets for Vets Home Construction Program. Cadets learn vocational skills and trades to build homes which are moved and donated within the community. This unique program is a certified secure facility with Texas Juvenile Justice Department post-adjudicated facilities in accordance to 343 standards.
