Residential Treatment Center (RTC)

When children and adolescents take part in our RTC program, they are able to address the challenges that they are facing while remaining in a caring, compassionate, and therapeutic environment that is conducive to true healing and recovery. Taking part in our RTC program can be your child’s first step toward a brighter future.

Admissions Criteria

The general residential treatment center (RTC) at Resource provides specialized services for male and female children and adolescents who meet the following criteria:

  • Between the ages of 10 and 21
  • Have an IQ score of 70 or higher
  • Have emotional and/or behavioral impairments that require a structured setting
  • Have emotional and/or behavioral impairments that have led to disruptions in their home and/or school environments
  • Have emotional and/or behavioral impairments that have resulted in previous out of home placements
  • Have emotional and/or behavioral impairments that have led to interaction with the juvenile justice system

Treatment Modalities

In the RTC program at Resource, these children and adolescents are provided with a safe and comfortable environment in which they can work towards overcoming the symptoms associated with the presence of mental health concerns or substance abuse issues. In order to provide these youth with the most comprehensive level of care possible, the following treatment modalities are incorporated into their treatment plans:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TFCBT)
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Client-centered therapy
  • Matrix model for addressing chemical dependency issues

Services Provided & Treatment Phases

The treatment process itself is divided into four unique phases of treatment, all of which are guided by highly trained and qualified mental health professionals and all of which must be completed prior to patients being discharged:

  1. Identify – During this initial phase of treatment, youth works with staff members to understand why they were brought to Resource for care.
  2. Connect – This phase of treatment occurs as youth learn new skills and come to understand how to put those skills into action.
  3. Demonstrate – In this phase of treatment, youth begin to actually use the skills that they have acquired.
  4. Contribute – This last phase of treatment requires youth to give back to the community by utilizing skills that they have learned while taking part in prosocial activities.

In conjunction with implementing each patient’s individualized treatment plan, the following therapies take place:

  • Individual therapy – These sessions occur at least once per week and focus on helping youth develop proficiencies in social, emotional, educational, self-care, health and wellness, and daily living skills.
  • Group therapy – These sessions occur daily, but some youth will participate in more depending upon his or her unique needs.
  • Family therapy – These sessions occur at least once every two weeks and are designed to help remove the barriers that have developed between the child and his or her family.
  • Medication management – Patients will be seen by psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner at a minimum of once per month. However, more appointments can be had when necessary.

On-Site Schooling

In order to prevent the youth in our care from falling behind academically, the RTC program at Resource provides in-house schooling that is accredited by the Indianapolis Public School System. All classes are led by certified special education teachers and take place for three hours each day. Both credit recovery and GED preparation options are afforded to students as well.

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.
