About Us

At Resource Treatment Center, we diligently work to build on the already-existing strengths of the youth who take part in our programs and services, while offering guidance and assistance towards living an autonomous life.

Who We Are

Situated in a historic neighborhood southeast of downtown Indianapolis, Indiana, Resource Treatment Center provides comprehensive mental health/psychiatric treatment for youth who are suffering from emotional, behavioral, and psychiatric concerns. With a focus on providing superior and individualized treatment in a safe, secure setting, the programming offered at Resource is designed to meet the needs of each youth who comes to us for care. Additionally, our programming focuses on utilizing proven therapeutic interventions that incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy into various therapies, as well as skill development and skill building throughout the course of treatment. We also make it a priority to involve each youth’s family in the planning of treatment, as we believe that ample support from our staff and a youth’s loved ones sets the stage for successful treatment outcomes.
