Residential Treatment

Our RCL-14 Residential Treatment Services provide a time-limited, interdisciplinary, psycho-educational, and therapeutic 24-hour-a-day structured program on our Gilroy campus.

Our residential team works toward stabilization and reintegration of the child back with family or to a lower level of care such as a foster home as soon as possible.

Since not all children have the same set of circumstances, we speak with our clients' families/guardians to create a plan specific to their needs. You can feel safe that our trained staff have the children's best interests in mind. Under the guidance of our certified psychiatrist, our licensed or license-waivered therapists provide therapy for children individually or with their families. In addition, our full-time registered nurse will always be there to monitor the children's medical needs.

We operate one residential cottage for up to 12 adolescent boys (ages 13-18) providing them with long term, short term and crisis/respite care.


Residential Treatment Services are delivered according to an articulated philosophy that ties individual needs to specific therapeutic interventions and education and to achievement of stated goals, such as gains in measurable skills, increased productivity and pro-social behavior, improved functioning, and a stable living arrangement in the community.

  • Structured Therapeutic Environment
