The Crestview Youth Academy (CYA) Borderline Developmental Disability (BDD) / Developmental Disability (DD) Nonsecure Program serves 24 males, ages 13 to 18, in a non-secure residential environment that provides treatment services for adjudicated boys who meet the criteria for BDD services and for those who meet the criteria for DD services. 

While the age range for admission is 13 to 18 years of age, admission shall be determined on a case-by-case basis.

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