Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF)

Through the program at our psychiatric residential treatment facility (PTRF) for males and females, youth are able to work on improving their lives, while taking steps towards a better future in a myriad of ways.

  • Between the ages of 11 and 21

Services Provided & Treatment Phases

Intensive mental health services are provided in a private and secure setting that is conducive to treating youth with severe mental health conditions. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TFCBT), motivational interviewing, dialectical behavioral therapy, the matrix model for substance abuse treatment, and a client-centered approach to care are woven throughout the services within PRTF. These services include four unique phases of treatment, all of which are guided by compassionate, caring, and qualified behavioral clinicians:

  1. Identify – During this phase of treatment, youth work with our staff to understand what brought them to Resource for care.
  2. Connect – Youth at this phase of treatment begin to learn new skills and understand how to put them into action.
  3. Demonstrate – This is the action phase of treatment wherein youth begin to use the skills they have learned.
  4. Contribute – The Contribute phase of treatment involves giving back to the community and utilizing skills learned while engaging in prosocial activities.

Treatment Modalities

The treatment modalities used within this program include individual, group, and family therapies. Individual therapy takes place once per week, family therapy occurs at least every two weeks, and groups are held on a daily basis. Youth are also afforded medication management services with our experienced psychiatrists, crisis intervention services, and vision and dental services when they are deemed necessary during treatment.

On-Site Schooling

Lastly, each youth is able to continue their education while receiving treatment through our on-site school, which is affiliated with the Indianapolis Public School System. Schooling offered while engaged in PRTF is administered by accredited special education teachers for three hours each day in a traditional classroom setting. GED preparation is available and youth are able to continue acquiring academic credits while away from their home school environments.

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.
