The residential treatment center is a co-ed unit separated into 2 cottages. There are 15 beds in each cottage and the program is located in the City of Albany. The Residential Treatment Center provides adolescents who are in the care of and custody of their local Department of Social Services with short and long term residential placement. The youth are in care for safety reasons. They are placed to focus on their individual clinical goals, their behavior, and healing from past trauma.
A referral is required from the Department of Social Services, who makes a referral to Parsons' Centralized Intake Department. A determination about appropriateness is made, followed with plans for admission. Referrals can also come in to the on-call intake worker after hours for the emergency room.
