Enhanced Residential Treatment Center


Enhanced Residential Treatment Center

The program targets adolescents ages 11 to 17 in need of residential care, often the most highly traumatized youth in our communities. Comprehensive psychological assessments, person-centered planning, and evidence-based therapeutic practices will be provided to youth in treatment for an average of up to 120 days. Enhancements in discharge planning will include High-Fidelity Wraparound (HFW) and Family Centered Treatment (FCT) services.

Although our youth have been through exceptionally challenging circumstances, they are survivors. They are more than just a number and statistic, they are resilient warriors.

Each child who goes through our residential program brings their own set of strengths, stories, and skills. It’s not only our purpose to provide the children we serve with a safe place to heal and thrive, it’s our mission.
