Residential Treatment Center (RTC)

Intermediate to Long-term Behavioral Care for Boys and Girls Ages 10–18.

Our Residential Treatment Center is certified by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS). We serve young people who are chronic trauma survivors. They respond to acute or sustained injuries with symptoms typically described as moderately severe mental health issues, conduct-disordered oppositional defiant behavior, or other severe behavioral problems.

The RTC provides services that include individual, family, and group therapies; medical care; psychiatric and psychological consultation; milieu therapy; therapeutic recreation; independent living training; and post-discharge case management.

We provide services in two cottages on the Champlin Avenue campus. The cottages have twenty-two beds with adolescent boys in A Cottage and adolescent girls in B Cottage.

We can also serve an additional eight to ten children in our post-discharge case management program.
