Lyle B. Medlock Treatment Facility
Lyle B. Medlock Treatment Facility provides highly structured care and supervision for males ages 13 through 17 who have committed offenses that require secure placement. The youth housed at the facility are court ordered and placed by the Dallas County Juvenile District Courts. The facility has a capacity for 96 youth, and it operates 24 hours, 365 days a year. Youth must successfully complete at least the Senior Level of the program to be eligible for release. The average length of stay at the facility is 6 to 9 months. The facility is registered with the Texas Juvenile Probation Commission.
Youth attend classes on site that are provided by the Dallas County Juvenile Justice Charter School. Educational staff works diligently to ensure that appropriate youth enroll in the HSEP/GED program. Youth participate in group counseling, individual counseling, life-skills counseling, recreational activities, drug education, and other programs designed to assist with basic skills related to health, hygiene, independent living, and employment. The facility recognizes the importance of education and training in order to enhance the youth’s self-esteem, productivity, and skills.
Lyle B. Medlock Treatment Center partners with the Parkland Hospital to provide medical and mental health services to the youth. The program encourages the youth to develop and maintain healthy bodies and minds that contribute to their successful rehabilitation.
