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 Therapeutic Program Agency designed to provide time limited intensive treatment and support services.
WHAT WE DO
Eggleston Short-term Residential Therapeutic Program (ESTRTP) is designed to mitigate identified mental health challenges, alter behavioral patterns and optimize opportunities for success in family and community settings.
ESTRTP offers 24-hour care and supervision of English and Spanish speaking 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 or abandonment. Many of our youth have severe and persistent challenges in social, emotional, behavioral and mental health functioning. Although circumstances vary, we often serve youth who struggle with substance abuse or dependency, anger management problems, and personal victimization issues. Accordingly, our program provides services addressing co-occurring substance use, LGBTQ, gender identity issues, youth who have been exposed to sex trafficking, victims of abuse/neglect, some medical problems, special education, and adolescents preparing for independent living.
The model of the agency is designed to provide foster youth with an opportunity to develop into emotionally healthy and successful young men.
