Most agree that the first priority of a parent is to keep their child safe. When a teenager is taking risks that negatively impacts his or her life, and outpatient counseling has failed, the intervention of a residential treatment program may be the best course of action. Since 2006, Elk River Treatment Program (ERTP) has provided evidence-based therapeutic treatment for boys and girls ages 12 - 18. Our typical client may be struggling with one or more of the following: depression, anxiety, maladaptive behaviors, declining grades, poor peer choices, grief/loss, adoption issues, mental illness and/or dependency on alcohol or substances. We utilize a multidisciplinary treatment team to evaluate, assess and develop an individualized treatment plan to meet the needs of each client. ERTP is licensed by the State of Alabama Department of Youth Services and is accredited in Behavioral Health Care by The Joint Commission. Clients in grades 6 - 12 attend an accredited, college-prep school on site and are supported by Highly Qualified and State Certified Teachers.
