Residential Treatment Centers for Troubled Girls

A residential treatment center (RTC) for troubled girls is an inpatient facility that specifically caters to behaviorally out-of-control teenage girls.


These single-gendered, specialized facilities are designed to acutely treat the therapeutic, behavioral, and root-cause of various issues that encourage negative behaviors in young struggling women (typically between the ages 12-17).

Any reputable RTC for girls is staffed by behavioral experts, therapists, and other psychiatric professionals who have credible experience in treating troubled adolescent girls, specifically. While enrolled in a residential treatment program, teen girls will work side-by-side with peers who also struggle with similar behavioral and mental health-related issues.

Many RTC’s will promote a positive peer-culture that heavily relies on teenage girls holding one another accountable, uplifting one another during group therapy sessions, and maintaining a positive influence for other girls to follow.
