Admissions

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.

I always felt so misunderstood, but at Resource it was like someone finally took the time to get to know me. That made a huge difference. This place helped me so much.
