Carolina Dunes Behavioral Health’s Psychiatric Residential Treatment Program (PRTF) offers long-term treatment for youth with ongoing behavioral, emotional, or psychiatric challenges. Treatment is individualized for each resident, and we encourage parents/guardians to participate actively in their child’s treatment. Adolescents work with a personalized team of therapists, psychiatrists, nurses, and residential support staff to ensure safety and promote the practice of behavioral management skills. This program provides treatment in a safe, structured, secure therapeutic setting, and is ideal for adolescents who are experiencing serious mental health or behavioral problems that impair their ability to participate in their schools, their communities, and in their home environments.
