Male Residential Treatment Facility (RFT)
MHY offers a specialized sexual abuse prevention Residential Treatment Facility (RFT) for ages 11-18. Males may be adjudicated dependent and/or delinquent and can have involvement with a county mental health agency and/or behavioral health organization. The program has 24 hour-a-day awake supervisions, seven days a week. This intensive program offers a highly structured daily routine that includes a variety of competency building groups, recreational activities, counseling groups, daily living/life skills responsibilities and a variety of therapies, which include intensive individual therapy and family therapy complemented by psychiatric treatment. A low staff to resident ratio and a well-defined daily routine provide the stability and active support for residents.
This specialized Male RTF Program is designed to provide therapeutic services that are intended to improve the chronic and persistent emotional and behavioral problems that contribute to the resulting behavior and interfere with their ability to succeed in the home, school and community settings. Through the provision of individualized therapeutic services, based largely on the sanctuary principles of care as well as utilizing Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, the residential treatment facility seeks to improve individual functioning while helping to develop skills that will successfully reintegrate the client into his family and community or into a less restrictive level of care. An RTF treatment recommendation must come from a psychiatrist or psychologist, and the youth must be demonstrating a need for this specialized program. Those served will need to meet the medical necessity criteria for placement under medical assistance.
