Clients with conduct disorder are seen in acute care settings only when their behavior is severe and only for short periods of stabilization. Much long-term work takes place at school and home or another community setting. Some clients are placed outside their parents’ home for short or long periods. Group homes, halfway houses, and residential treatment settings are designed to provide safe, structured environments and adequate supervision if that cannot be provided at home. Clients with legal issues may be placed in detention facilities, jails, or jail-diversion programs.
