  The (Developing Opportunities and Values through Education and Substance Abuse Treatment) D.O.V.E.S Program serves juvenile females with behavioral and substance abuse problems. D.O.V.E.S. – RCH, is the sole community based program providing services and support to all adjudicated juvenile females requiring residential placement in New Jersey. Located in Hopewell, NJ, the facility is on the New Jersey Register of Historic Places.  The property also known as “Highfields”, was once the home of the famous Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr.  It encompasses some 600 acres and was the site of the infamous Lindbergh baby kidnapping.  Residents are acquainted with the history of this aviation pioneer known as the father of the Trans-Atlantic flights, and provide escorted tours to the general public upon request.  
  D.O.V.E.S. RCH hosts a maximum of 16 residents with 2 relapse beds. The relapse beds are specifically for those who have previously completed the program. Residents are admitted on both committed and probation status ranging in age from 13 to 19 years of age. The New Jersey State Parole Board determines length of stay in regard to committed residents.  Residents on probation status are determined on an individual assessment of needs upon admission, which ranges from 6 to 12 months.   
  The JJC utilizes gender specific programming that is designed to meet the unique needs of female residents.  An initial assessment identifies the appropriate level within the JJC’s continuum of care for each resident. Reassessments throughout their program stay help ensure that needs continue to be met appropriately. Residents participate in individual and group counseling, a full academic program, vocational training, recreational activities and pro-social opportunities.  
  The program provides comprehensive individualized care through a treatment team approach that addresses behavioral, substance abuse and developmental issues. Well-being and healthy living is promoted in a safe and clean environment. An incentive program stresses and recognizes educational gains, pro-social behavior and independence. Each resident is supported physically, emotionally, and mentally through clinical services. The spiritual needs of the residents are addressed on an individual basis. The program strives to empower each young woman to become a self- reliant, confident, and well-rounded individual.
