Overcoming challenges with integrated services.

Eggleston Short-Term Residential Treatment Programs

HELPING OUR YOUTHProviding therapeutic services, structure support and guidance.

Eggleston Youth Centers, Inc. is licensed by the State of California, Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division to operate a Short-Term Residential Treatment Program designed to provide time-limited intensive therapeutic services.


Group of Teens

Eggleston Short-Term Residential Treatment Programs (STRTP) are designed to mitigate identified mental health challenges, alter behavioral patterns and optimize opportunities for success in family and community settings.

Eggleston STRTP offers 24-hour care and supervision to male youth, 13–17 years old. Youth are placed for a variety of reasons. The behaviors are typically the result of a history of trauma, abuse, neglect and/or abandonment. Many of our youth have severe and persistent challenges in social, emotional, behavioral and mental health functioning. Although circumstances vary, the programs often serve youth who struggle with substance abuse or dependency, anger management problems, and personal victimization issues. Accordingly, our programs provide services addressing co-occurring substance use, LGBTQ+, gender identity issues, youth who have been exposed to sex trafficking, and victims of abuse/neglect. Additionally, specialized programs are offered for youth preparing for independent living.

The model of Eggleston STRTP is designed to provide placed youth with an opportunity to develop into emotionally healthy and successful young men.


A SAFE PLACE TO RECOVEROur youth deserve a stable place to work on their recovery.

Eggleston Short-Term Residential Treatment Programs (STRTP) consist of eight single-family residences located throughout Los Angeles & San Bernardino counties.

Youth are provided a safe, structured, and family-like environment where they receive rehabilitative services which include individualized clinical interventions, psychopharmacology, structured programming, educational and medical services.

An important factor of recovery is to engage the youth in addressing and identifying their needs, stabilize symptomatology, prepare for reunification with biological family, transition to foster care placement, or independent living.

Our goal as the treatment provider:

  • 1. Engage youth, their identified birth family member(s) and anyone else identified by the youth as his support person, in the decision-making process.
  • 2. Facilitate youth reintegration with their family/caregiver and community or in an alternative permanency plan to prepare for independent living.
  • 3. Create a safe, holistic, consistent, and strengths-based treatment delivery of services consistent with trauma-informed care.
