The Fit to Return program is a service provided to school districts in New Jersey.

A Partnership for Positive outcomes
Preferred Behaviorial Heath Group was the first to offer this program to New Jersey school districts, and we have over 10 years of experience that have yielded successful results. It is a fee-for-service program for the school districts in which they only pay for the services provided. Services are also available for private pay.
The Fit to Return program provides a comprehensive clinical assessment and recommendations for students who have been excluded from school due to behavioral health issues, with the goal of preparing them for a potential return to the classroom.
