Residential Treatment Programs Outside NYC
There is a wide range of privately financed residential treatment options for children and adults with psychiatric disorders. These programs -- located throughout the United States, but not in New York City -- promote mental health and dual diagnosis treatment in residential settings, away from home. A stay can last anywhere from weeks to months to years. These programs tend to fall into categories: farm-based residential communities, group residential treatment, apartment based residential treatment and long-term residential living arrangements. These programs may not participate in any insurance plans so care must be privately funded.
Many of these residential treatment programs are members of a trade association named the American Residential Treatment Association (ARTA). ARTA's website lists and describes the ARTA members and links to each program's website.
Listed below are residential treatment programs, both ARTA members and others:
