Residential Treatment Program Placement

V. Matheus – Therapeutic & Educational Consulting seeks out warm, nurturing, professional care providers and environments that focus on whole person, integrative care. We search for and only recommend people and programs that value personal growth, emotional regulation, and life skill development – without an institutionalized or pathology-focused feel. We are a strength-based approach.

Adolescents and young adults who have severe emotional issues, psychiatric needs, or require a high level of support and monitoring around behaviors resulting from their clinical complexity  and/or trauma often benefit from the highly structured environment of a residential treatment center (RTC).

Residential treatment programs offer a traditional medical support component and close monitoring. These centers are often accredited by the Joint Commission or the accreditation of Healthcare Organizations of the Council on Accreditation.

Residential treatment centers vary in approach; some may mirror a traditional boarding school setting, or a group home-type setting. They also have different levels of security: some are locked facilities and most offer 24-7 monitoring and structure to ensure student safety.

Within an RTC, continuing education is possible, and many programs offer a robust curriculum ensuring your student’s academics are not compromised while receiving treatment.
