Northcutt Residential Treatment Center provides a safe, healing environment for elementary school-aged boys who are victims of trauma. These children have experienced physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. They have been neglected. They have witnessed the abuse of family members. The innocence of their childhood has been taken from them. As a result of their trauma history, they engage in high-risk behaviors, self-harm, aggressive, defiant, or oppositional behaviors. They exhibit symptoms of anxiety and depression. Without treatment these children are at risk of growing up to experience significant health and mental health effects later in life.

Northcutt Residential Treatment Center's services are grounded in the philosophy of Trauma-Informed Care, a Best Practice model, which has demonstrated positive outcomes for victims of trauma. Using a multi-disciplinary team approach, we wrap services around the child and family to help them heal, and to transition back to home, school, and the community.

We help Elementary School-aged Boys:
• who have experienced abuse and neglect
• who exhibit severe emotional and behavioral issues
• who have been in or out of a local school system; served by a county Children Services Board; involved in the juvenile justice and/or probation system.


Services Available

We take a multi-disciplinary, individualized approach to teach, encourage and support each boy's healing process to a new way of life. After an initial assessment, an individual treatment plan is developed, forming the foundation for each boy's care at Northcutt. Specific services include:

• Regular individual, family and group therapy sessions along with individual and group chemical dependency counseling, if needed.

• Psychiatric and Nursing services ensure that an effective medication regimen is initiated, monitored and modified when appropriate — we have 24-hour Nursing coverage.

• Services are grounded in the philosophy of Trauma-informed Care.

• A structured program that includes recreation, outdoor activities, and socialization.

• On-site educational services — including a computer lab — are provided by a certified special education teacher who works with each     student’s home school district to facilitate provision of credit for academic work completed while at Northcutt

• We coordinate each boy's healthcare needs during his stay at Northcutt.

• We offer mental health supports and follow-up services for boys in transition back to their home location

• While the average length of stay is 6 months — each boy’s time at Northcutt is determined by his personal progress toward his     treatment goals
