Short Term Adolescent Residential Treatment


RTC Classroom RTC Group Room RTC Dormitory

The Short Term Adolescent Residential Treatment program (START) is for youth that have failed to respond to less intensive interventions and repeatedly violated probation conditions. During their 90 day stay, youth learn to think and act responsibly through a peer support approach. Youth receive individual and group counseling to develop appropriate coping and life skills. Families attend therapy sessions with the youth learning parenting skills and developing communication and cooperation within the family. START is located within the Henry Wade Juvenile Justice Complex.
