The Bayfield culture has evolved through a history of commitment to our youth and a common sense approach since 1973. We offer specialized treatment for female and male youth experiencing severe externalizing and/or internalizing disorders. To find the way through their emotional maze of adversity, youth first need to find safety in a place where their behaviour is understood and accepted. Each youth may be referred for similar reasons and demonstrate similar behaviours, however their individual treatment needs will vary according to their unique experiences, challenges and sense of self.
Bayfield Treatment Centres provides both family based care and staff supported milieus that promote a sense of belonging, develop trust and mutual respect and foster an appreciation for the rights of others. Bayfield’s psychoeducational programming expedites behavioural stabilization through skill development in the areas of emotional regulation and coping strategies. We provide a comprehensive approach to treatment planning, using both individual and group formats to examine the youth’s experiences of victimization, sexual abuse, physical abuse, neglect, family violence, exposure to substance abuse, as well as deficits in social skills and self-esteem.
Building on our heritage of commitment and dedication, we will set a high standard for providing diversified services that will enable all individuals, in our care to realize their potential.
Bayfield's mission is to provide a range of treatment services to youth, who would benefit from an environment that encourages growth, change and positive interaction in the family, community, and within the rights and responsibilities of each individual, by offering quality programs that develop occupational skills, academic skills, life skills, mutual respect, common sense and morality.
Who We Are
We have chosen to specialize in the residential treatment industry, by offering services of exceptional quality. Our objective is to be recognized as the company that provides best practices and contemporary treatment to the youth we serve. We create relationships of enduring value with our youth, their families, our staff and agencies that partner in our efforts to make a significant difference. Doing so allows Bayfield to meet the needs of our youth and maintain our reputation as an organization designed to go the distance.
What We Believe
Our greatest asset, and the key to our success, is our people. We believe that each of us needs a sense of dignity, pride and satisfaction in what we do. Because providing exceptional service depends on our united efforts, we are most effective when we work together cooperatively, respecting each other’s contribution and importance.
How We Behave
We demonstrate our beliefs most meaningfully in the way we treat each other and by the positive example we set for one another. In all our interactions with our youth, their families, customers, associates and colleagues, we seek to deal with others as we would have them deal with us.
How We Succeed
We succeed when every decision is based on a clear understanding and belief in what we do and, when we couple this conviction with sound strategic and financial planning, we expect to achieve a fair and reasonable profit to ensure the prosperity of Bayfield and to offer long term benefits to the youth we serve, their families, our employees, our customers, our shareholders and the next Bayfield generation. We continue to learn and share our collective knowledge and experience with others through participation, research and leadership in our industry.
