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.
WHAT WE DO
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.
