Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF)

Peak Behavioral Health Services provides a safe, therapeutic environment for adolescent boys and girls, ages 12-18 who exhibit a persistent pattern of severe emotional and/or behavioral issues. These behaviors are frequent, disruptive and cannot be treated in a lesser level of care. Our trauma informed care approach: Treatment is individualized for each resident, and we encourage parents/guardians to participate actively in their child’s treatment. Each PRTF unit has its own licensed therapist, and residents are seen regularly by psychiatrists. To ensure resident safety and to promote the skills, each unit is staffed by licensed nurses and trained mental health technicians. Residents will attend a licensed on-site school.

  • Severe impulse control
