A residential treatment center is a place that takes a multi-faceted approach to addressing a multitude of problems that extend beyond the classroom and into a child daily life with his or her family, peers, and the rest of the world. Residential treatment programs conceptualize and prioritize family involvement in treatment and in discharge and transition planning using very divergent theoretical foundations. The spectrum of involvement practices ranges from the exclusion of parental and family involvement, to limited family involvement as directed by the program staff, to the ongoing maintenance of parent and family involvement in all aspects of the treatment milieu from start to discharge with extensive family follow-up services, or to the rare family residential program at the far end of the continuum where parents and children are placed in residential treatment together. Residential Treatment Centers offers youth aged 12 to 18 a residential treatment program for substance misuse problems. It is not a facility where a child is sent to be disciplined for something he or she has done wrong. For more information please call 888-703-7260.


Residential Care for Troubled Teens

Residential care is usually reserved for the child who is having problems in all three major areas of his life-family, school and peers-and even then only when the problems have not been amenable to out-patient treatment residential treatment is 24-hour care and is different from a group home, which is usually staffed by one couple and where the children are able to attend local schools. (Some children in group homes may need residential treatment or will need it in the future.) A residential treatment center is also different from psychiatric hospitals, which are generally used for severely disturbed children who are suicidal or who are undergoing detoxification, receiving treatment for psychoses and so forth.
