Florence Crittenton PRTF program serves youth ages 13 to 18 assigned female at birth with mental health disorders, substance abuse, and/or high-risk behaviors requiring a structured and nurturing environment with active psychiatric treatment. Residents have often had multiple acute needs and have struggled to find their potential at lower levels of care thus leaving families feeling overwhelmed. Residents may struggle with keeping themselves safe, interacting in the community, attachment in the family, and/or performance in school. These difficulties are often the result of past trauma, strong feelings of anger, sadness, loss, or anxiety that becomes overwhelming. The goal of participating in a treatment program is to promote not only symptom reduction, but also address the core issues that led to such distress. Residents are empowered to learn new skills, find their strengths, and achieve long term goals—shifting their focus from surviving to thriving.
