Youth Treatment Center In Chamberlain Is Closing

January 9, 2014, 7:41 AM

CHAMBERLAIN, SD -

A treatment center for troubled youth in the southeastern South Dakota city of Chamberlain is closing.

The Florida-based Youth Services International Inc. last week told the nearly 40 staff members at the Chamberlain Academy that it would be shut down. The specific date depends on how long it takes to move youth into other facilities.

Regional Vice President T.J. Mauer declined to give reasons for the closure. He says staff will have an opportunity to transfer within the company.

Mauer says the residential facility is licensed to house 40 teenage boys and girls and has housed an average of 22 the past year.

Mayor Doug Nelson says the city hopes to find another company to take over the center so it can continue operating.
