Services & Programs

An array of treatment and program services is available for youth in OJJ secure care facilities. Youth receive various services based on assessments.

All youth participate in LAMOD (the Louisiana Model for Secure Care). LAMOD is an integral part of the juvenile justice reform movement. With assistance from the Missouri Youth Services Institute (MYSI), OJJ and the Casey Strategic Consulting Group (CSCG) designed LAMOD, an approach tailored to Louisiana’s unique environment, dynamics, and needs. LAMOD provides a therapeutic environment that focuses on youth and staff interacting in small groups, involving family, and fostering positive peer culture.  LAMOD prepares youth for re-entry into the community as productive citizens.
