Cohannet Academy

Cohannet Academy, which is located in the Taunton State Hospital, is an Intensive Residential Treatment Program for adolescent girls, ages 13-18, specializing in trauma informed care. 

Residents are referred state-wide by MA DMH, many with DCF and DYS involvement. We are the only all-female, locked DMH residential treatment program in New England. We also accept out-of-state referrals and have working relationships with Connecticut, Vermont, Rhode Island and Maine. The unique structure of our program allows us the ability to maintain dysregulated residents without the need for hospitalization, while at the same time providing daily community access to strengthen independent living skills and foster a future vision beyond institutional care.

Our specialties include:

  • Program wide trauma-informed care
  • Sensory integrated therapies
  • 24 hour residential services
  • Specialized Educational Services
