The Alice C. Tyler Village of Childhelp is a private, nonprofit Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility located on 270 acres in Culpeper County, Virginia. The Village provides a clinically sophisticated therapeutic program utilizing an interdisciplinary approach specializing in the treatment of children and adolescents (5-14 years of age) with mild to severe trauma or neglect, psychiatric disorders, and neurodevelopmental disorders. Children live in separate home-like cottages based on age and gender. Childhelp takes a holistic approach to treatment; in addition to meeting physical, emotional, and educational needs, Childhelp also seeks to address the spiritual, recreational, and creativity of each child. Documents to review for consideration of placement can include: psychological evaluation, psychiatric evaluation (as applicable), current IEP or current educational information, current behaviors which warrant the level of care, current medications and treatment and medication history. Exclusionary criteria includes: Measured FSIQ below 55, required 24-hour assisted medical care, actively suicidal or homicidal, or active sexual perpetrators.

Interdisciplinary Treatment Team

A Board Certified Child Psychiatrist oversees the treatment team which includes: Nursing Services, Licensed or License-eligible Therapists, Art Therapist, Special Education Certified Teachers, Occupational Therapist, Speech Language Therapist, Registered Dietitian, and a Certified Therapeutic Recreational Specialist. Evidence-based Treatment Interventions include: Individual, Family and Group Therapy, Art Therapy, Daily Milieu Therapy, Experiential and Recreational Therapy, Trauma Focused Therapy and Intervention supported by Attachment Research, along with Equine and other Animal Assisted Therapies. The Ultimate Benefit of the Village is that through a custom and individualized treatment plan children steadily progress to a new and healthier journey. Each staff member at the Village strives to see that every child is able to be discharged to a less restrictive, positive placement such as being reunited with his or her family, adopted, placed with a relative or foster family or relocated to a less intensive treatment facility.

Facility Accreditation/Licensure

Childhelp is accredited/licensed by: Joint Commission, Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services, West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, and tne Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Education.
