Vermont Permanency Initiative 


VPI is committed to providing individualized comprehensive services to adolescents & families who often have experienced complex developmental trauma. VPI has grown to support three programs, VPI South, Vermont Assessment Center at Newbury, and Vermont Support & Stabilization Center. 


VPI South, an all-girls intensive residential treatment program, provides support for students that, in response to their life experiences, can present with a constellation of adaptive mechanisms that have become distressing symptoms. These symptoms often present as self-harm, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, aggression, suicidality, as well as disordered eating. We believe the students who come to us deserve a safe and secure environment where they can find hope and healing. To learn more about VPI South click the link below.


Vermont Support & Stabilization (VTSS) is a state-wide, community-based service model that provides various services for Vermont youth and family systems in a 90-day program. As a state-wide program VTSS operates in Regional Teams, with each Team providing services for multiple Vermont DCF Offices. To learn more about VTSS click the link below.
