Residential Treatment Facility
Residential Treatment Facilities are the primary inpatient services provided through the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH). The program operates around the clock, and provides a specialized, extended therapeutic environment for males and females (ages 12 to 21) whose treatment needs are so great, they must be placed outside the home. These residents are treated by a multi-disciplinary team comprised of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, recreational therapists, nurses, school personnel and administrators, for problems due to interpersonal, emotional, psychiatric, social, family or educational issues.
Serving clients throughout the Western New York region, the program provides discharge planning and transition services to facilitate a resident's smooth transition back into the community.
