Bayes Achievement Center is licensed by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services (HHSC). BAC is also nationally accredited through The Joint Commission.

BAC is a licensed residential treatment center that serves children with behavior problems. Some children may have psychiatric illnesses, developmental disabilities or other handicapping conditions.

BAC does not use isolation or locked seclusion. When it is necessary to separate a person from the group, they are directly supervised by staff.

BAC has a school campus in addition to our residential campus. Our school is approved as a non-public school by the Texas Education Agency. Children may transition to their public schools once they have made progress within the BAC treatment program.

The length of stay at BAC can vary greatly depending on the specific needs of the students we serve.  The average length of stay is one to two years and is determined by the team which is comprised of the parents, school district, and BAC.

At the time of referral, it will be determined if the individual meets criteria for admission. Once a funding source has been secured, call and speak to the Admissions Department who will submit an Application for Admission to the Treatment Team for approval. The Admissions Department will advise if the person has been accepted for admission. If there are no openings, the family may choose to be placed on the waiting list.
