Adolescent Services assist with youth from the ages of 14 through their 18th birthday or the end of 12th grade. HMDS relies upon the Recovery Model as we work with adolescents and their families. The recovery model is based on the concepts of strengths and empowerment of the people we serve. We believe that when individuals with mental illness and/or addiction have greater control and choice in their treatment, they will be able to take increased control and initiative in their lives.
There are three types of stalking/serious bodily injury protective orders: Emergency, Preliminary, and Permanent Protective Orders. An Emergency Protective Order (up to 72 hours) can be issued by a magistrate or a police officer. (If a warrant is issued for assault and battery against a family or household member and the magistrate finds there is probable danger of further acts of family abuse by the defendant, the magistrate is directed to issue an emergency protective order.)
