Short Term Residential Therapeutic Program
Short Term Residential Therapeutic Program is a part of Residential.
Victor Treatment Centers (VTC) exists to provide a healthy, healing alternative strength-based services oriented living environment for severely emotionally disturbed children and young adults. As a result of a mental, behavioral, or emotional disorders these youth exhibit emotional, cognitive, and/or behavioral functioning which is so impaired as to interfere substantially with their role or functioning in their family, school, or community activities.
The Victor Short Term Residential Therapeutic Program (STRTP) is designed to create a community/family reconnection engine for highly disconnected foster youth with significant mental health challenges. STRTP will have two objectives: 1) to help youth permanently re-establish safe and nurturing family, educational, and community connections; and 2) to assist in establishing a new system of care that will prevent any more youth from reaching this point of disconnection.
The program is designed for youth and their families to remain connected after the client transitions from residential care using planned respite as needed while they are in their family-setting placements.
