A residential treatment center is a live-in health care facility providing therapy for substance abuse, mental illness, or other behavioral problems. Generally, these treatment facilities offer inpatient- based therapy, usually requiring enrollees to live on campus for 9-12 months. An increasingly popular therapeutic service, residential treatment centers offer therapeutic and rehabilitative treatment to troubled teens.
Troubled teens, who suffer from therapeutic, psychological and emotional disorders, are excellent candidates for residential treatment. Residential treatment centers employ therapeutic and psychological professionals, sometimes even living on campus, or very nearby.
Residential treatment centers also offer rehabilitative services for troubled teens who struggle with drug and/or alcohol addiction. Residential treatment centers are a popular choice among parents of troubled teens due to their effectiveness in treating troubled teens suffering from psychological disorders, as well as those who struggle with chemical dependency.
