Residential Treatment

Crittenton Children's Center

Crittenton’s residential treatment programs address the intensive needs of adolescents who exhibit high-risk, out-of-control behaviors due to trauma from abuse, neglect, unhealthy socialization, or symptoms of mental illness. With treatment, these young people:

  • Gain internal behavioral control
  • Achieve academic success
  • Function safely and harmoniously within their family and social systems
  • Achieve their full potential and become independent and successful adults

Crittenton residents participate in a treatment plan developed especially to address each child's individual needs. We measure their treatment progress using a nationally accepted outcome tool developed by McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School, the Basis-32. In 2009, Crittenton residential treatment programs outperformed the national comparison group in all outcome measures.

Crittenton intensive residential treatment services are comprehensive. Specialized units deliver unique care for two distinct groups: dependents of military personnel and highly aggressive adolescent boys. Project Potential programs provide the life skills necessary for a high-quality life.

Crittenton staff help youth use exercise to achieve success.
