Cedar Crest Hospital offers a residential treatment center (RTC) that provides a safe, compassionate, and warm environment for adolescents aged 12 through 17 who are struggling with emotional problems, chemical dependency, or both. Our RTC program specializes in longer-term treatment for teens who are stepping down from inpatient care but still require the structure and safety our program provides. We also offer our RTC program to teens who have not responded well to other types of placements and therapies. We offer treatment to both male and female teens who may be facing one or more of the following challenges:
- Extreme, severe emotional disturbance
- Suicidal behaviors
- Self-destructive behaviors
- Victims of sexual abuse
- Personality disorders
- Chemical dependency
- Oppositional defiant disorder
- Major depression
- Mood disorders
- Bipolar disorder
Located on 33-acres in the gorgeous rolling hills of Central Texas, our campus-style setting provides a serene environment that promotes healing and recovery. Cedar Crest provides a warm living space much like a home environment, a full-sized gym, a swimming pool, walking trails, and a low-elements ropes course that helps our clients learn the value of teamwork while working on both communication and problem-solving skills.
Upon admission to our RTC program, your child will be evaluated by our multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, social workers, dietitian, and therapists to determine the best plan of care for you and your child. After the evaluations, we will meet with you and your child to develop an individualized plan of care for your child that meets all of his or her needs. Your child’s progress will be regularly monitored through regular treatment team meetings and ongoing evaluations. We encourage family and loved ones to regularly visit and participate in your child’s care. Our staff will partner with the local school system to provide an educational program that meets the specialized academic needs of each client.
