Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility Program

Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility Program is a program for youth who require intensive 24/7 psychiatric treatment in a residential setting. It is a step up from our PCC program.

The program admits boys age 6 to 17 or girls ages 6 to 11 who have been hospitalized and need additional treatment before returning home. Often, youth have not shown significant progress in outpatient treatment and need a more structured treatment setting. Youth in our program have had numerous psychiatric hospitalizations and services in the community that have not been successful.

The program also utilizes the Psycho Educational Model, but has increased staffing, therapeutic and psychiatric components that provide more individualized and specialized treatment. Family and/or guardianship involvement is one of the requirements.
