Residential Treatment

The Residential Treatment program at DePelchin treats children and adolescents struggling with severe mental, emotional or behavioral problems that inhibit normal functioning in a family setting.  The purpose of the program is to help youths develop the coping methods, internal control and social skills they need to transition to a home environment.

Residential Treatment Center

DePelchin's residetial treatment center, located in Richmond, Texas, provides 24-hour care and temporary residence for youths ages 5-12. 

Program Components

Our residential program provides:

  • Psychiatric, psychological and trauma evaluations
  • 24-hour short-term intensive treatment
  • Medication management
  • Individual, group and family therapy
  • Milieu, recreational and art therapy
  • Individualized education
  • Life skills classes
  • Ongoing outpatient therapy and services after residents leave program

As a member of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network, our residential treatment staff is trauma-informed and utilizes a range of evidence-based approaches to helping residents achieve stability. Our goal is to foster self-regulation and competency while enhancing residents’ sense of self-worth.

Residential treatment services are short-term and typically last 90-120 days. Once a resident leaves the program, he or she may continue to receive therapy and medication monitoring if necessary.

Admission Criteria

We are currently only accepting referrals from the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (foster care and post-adoption) and the Texas Juvenile Justice Department.
