The DOVE Academy serves females, ages 15 to 18, in a therapeutic community combined with a cognitive behavioral model of treatment. The program provides mental health overlay services (MHOS), substance abuse overlay services (SAOS), and vocational education services.  However, youth who are physically aggressive, have serious mental health issues or educational limitations are not considered appropriate for placement. 

The anticipated average length of stay depends on the youth's pace of success in completing the individualized treatment plan and goals.

The DOVE Academy is a Type 3 program offering English, Math, Science, Social Studies, and one elective course. The elective course is typically used to provide additional reading assistance to students in need or for vocational training.

Education and vocational services are provided through the Jackson County School District. Vocational opportunities include: Culinary Operations, Landscaping, and Information Technology.

This program serves as an ACT® test site.
