Critical Care

Elmcrest operates three critical care treatment cottages: one for pre-adolescent males, one for adolescent males and one for adolescent females. These critical care programs are designed for youth whose challenges are greater than those in the residential treatment programs. Young people in these trauma-focused programs have single bedrooms and additional staff to support their needs. They also participate in evidence-based Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) informed treatment, both individually and in groups.
