Our mission is to fill in the missing links in existing service systems to improve outcomes for troubled youth and their families, while maximizing public resources and improving communities quality of life.
Welcome to JusticeWorks BehavioralCare!
Our core principle is to do ‘whatever it takes’ to help youth and families in our care achieve success.
JusticeWorks BehavioralCare is an offshoot of JusticeWorks YouthCare. JusticeWorks was founded in 1999 with a mission to provide value added services which fill in the gaps in service delivery systems to troubled youth and families. Our goal is to build better futures for youth, families, and communities and our operating strategy is to do whatever it takes to achieve our goals.
JusticeWorks’s founder and President, Daniel S. Heit, has been acknowledged as a national leader in developing and managing innovative programs for youth and families with profound challenges. He served two terms as President of Therapeutic Communities of America, was appointed by President George H.W. Bush to a Presidential Commission for Model State Drug Laws and served on President Bill Clinton’s behavioral health subcommittee for health care reform. He has developed and managed a broad continuum of residential and outpatient services in South Carolina and in many other states.
JusticeWorks BehavioralCare is a Qualified Provider of Rehabilitative Behavioral Health Services and is enrolled in Medicaid.
We offer a full range of behavioral health services to children and families working with South Carolina Departments of Social Services, Department of Juvenile Justice, local county schools and Mental Health. We accept private insurance from Blue Cross Blue Shield, TriCare, Cigna and most other carriers.
