Residential Treatment Center Program

Long-term Care for Children and Adolescents

The Residential Treatment Center Program provides long-term care for male and female children and adolescents, ages 6 through 18 years old, with severe emotional and behavioral problems. The mission of the program is to consistently provide rehabilitation and treatment to psychologically challenged adolescents and their families in a therapeutic setting, utilizing a model of trauma-informed care. The length of stay can range from a few months to a year.

With an acute inpatient unit on-site, we are able to successfully treat more challenging youth that may have occasional need for stabilization during their treatment. Our program follows the medical model, which entails Registered Nursing care, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Services provided on-site

  • Individual therapy is provided weekly by a masters’ level, licensed therapist/social worker
