A Residential Treatment Center (RTC) offers 24- hour inpatient care in a licensed facility. An RTC provides children and adolescents who have long-term and serious emotional disturbance with residential care in a structured therapeutic milieu and provides a range of diagnostic and therapeutic mental health services. RTC's provide an intense level of care and can only be provided when therapeutic services available in the community are insufficient to address the consumer's need.
