Residential Treatment Program

Peak Behavioral Health Services provides a safe, therapeutic environment for adolescent boys and girls, ages 12-18. Treatment is individualized for each resident, and we encourage parents/guardians to participate actively in their child’s treatment. Each RTC unit has its own therapist, and residents are seen regularly by licensed psychiatrists. To ensure resident safety and to promote the practice of new skills, each unit is staffed by licensed nurses and trained mental health technicians.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is designed for adolescents who do not require the intensity of a hospital setting, but are still having some emotional or behavioral issues that need to be addressed more intensely than what can be provided in a traditional outpatient setting. Participants attend PHP five days a week from 8:30am-3:00pm, Monday through Friday. Two hours of programming each day are dedicated to educational instruction provided by the Las Cruces Public School System. The program will permit adolescents to continue earning school credit while focusing on their mental health, support and treatment for youth facing emotional or mental difficulties and/or substance abuse problems. Strong academic support coupled with strong mental health will lead to success.


  • Partial Hospitalization is an outpatient program for the diagnosis and/or active treatment of a serious mental disorder in a consistent, structured environment while maintaining usual living arrangements with their families
  • The level of care provided in PHP is necessary to maintain the patient’s progress and prevent relapse or readmission to the hospital
  • Serves as a transition from inpatient to outpatient care
  • “Step down” from hospitalization and “step up” when outpatient treatment is not effectively meeting the needs
  • Transportation is provided to those who may need assistance
  • A certified educator is on site to provide academic support for virtual learning
