Laurel Oaks Behavioral Health Center proudly operates a residential treatment center (RTC) for children and teens, males (ages 10-18) and females (ages 12-18). Four separate living units, organized by age and gender, are housed within our RTC, each with their own living areas and dedicated staff including the Clinical Director/Therapist, Unit Director, and Mental Health Technicians.
While all youth served in this program have at least one primary psychiatric diagnosis, many have several psychiatric disorders as well as other challenges such as mental retardation, physical or sexual abuse, neglect victimization, substance use problems, and/or co-occurring medical conditions.
Many of these children or adolescents have histories of serious high-risk behaviors such as attempts to commit suicide or self-harm, assaultive behavior, running away, etc.
We are proud to be able to serve many children and adolescents who have been denied admission by other facilities and experienced failures in treatment in other settings.
