Sequel TSI Madison was established in 1996 as a residential treatment facility serving males assigned to the program by the Alabama Department of Youth Services, after being adjudicated in the state of Alabama. A separate unit is dedicated to serving males placed by the Alabama Department of Human Resources for intensive care and treatment. Sequel TSI Madison is a Medium Risk Secure Facility with 58 beds with 48 licensed by the Alabama Department of Youth MadisonServices and 10 beds licensed by the Alabama Department of Human Resources. The treatment staff provides comprehensive, challenging, and therapeutic services for adolescent males ages 12 to 18. Our program utilizes a cognitive behavioral approach to focus on maladaptive behaviors and provides rehabilitative services including individual, group, and family therapy; psycho-educational groups; basic living skills groups; medication monitoring; psychiatric and medical care; and peer group dynamics therapy. In our safe environment, our students learn to verbalize needs, feelings, and goals without fear of abuse, and learn to function effectively in a cooperative society with other teens. The program Positive Peer Culture (PPC) therapy emphasizes values and team building. PPC therapy empowers residents to make changes by learning from each other, improves social skills, and helps them become positive leaders of their peers, as well as responsible citizens when they return to the community.

Whom Do We Serve?

ziplineOur mission is the healing and restoration of children and their families. Every resource at our disposal is directed toward this purpose. Our efforts are always governed by the principles of honor, respect, teamwork, responsibility, accountability and honesty. Our goal is to help residents become more aware of socially acceptable behaviors before reintegration back with their families and communities.

The time an adolescent spends at Sequel of Alabama programs is traditionally a period of academic gain, which is significant to your child's overall growth and success.

The objectives for our students are to attend school, demonstrate appropriate behavior, & achieve academically, so that they might return with competency & confidence to compete within the public or private school arena, college, military service, or job market.

Students participate in a school program recognized by the state of Alabama as a state supported school and is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS CASI), wherein all teachers hold Alabama teaching certifications. A traditional school year, with an academic program based on the Alabama State Course of Study core, offers educational opportunity for each resident as a part of his individualized treatment plan. Summer school is conducted for remediation, enrichment and credit recovery as needed by students for courses in which he may have missed or failed in previous school placement.

Providing career/vocational education assists us in preparing students to compete more competently & confidently upon completion of the program. This curriculum prepares residents for life outside of secured residential settings by teaching specific skills & building self-esteem through a variety of activity.

Our mission is to provide a comprehensive educational program that will enable the residents to maximize their potential as they will have the knowledge to shape the future and become productive citizens who are contributing members of their community and society. To this objective we will follow the defined principles of our beliefs.
