Residential Treatment Services

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:

  • Residents are evaluated at least weekly by a child and adolescent board-certified psychiatrist
  • Individual therapy is provided weekly by a masters’ level, licensed therapist/social worker
  • Group therapies are provided daily, which include: trauma-focused sessions, anger management, coping skills, chemical dependency education and independent living skills
  • Family therapy is provided to resolve conflicts and to enhance the transitional process to the home or another less intensive setting
  • Educational services are provided, Monday through Friday, by certified teachers
  • Recreational activities and experiential therapy are utilized, which includes the use of our Alpine Tower

The program goals are:

  • To empower residents in their recovery by educating them about their own individual mental health needs
  • To provide a comfortable environment that fosters an atmosphere of trust and respect
  • To assist residents in understanding that thoughts and feelings relate directly to risk taking behaviors and peer decision making
  • To encourage residents to use coping skills to control and alter negative behaviors
