Turning the Corner (TTC) Residential Treatment Programs provide services for adolescent and young male adults ages 12 – 21 with behavioral problems, assigned to TTC by the Rhode Island Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF).
Our programs are designed to meet both adolescent and family needs, ranging from the basics of shelter and safety to the complex longer-term needs of the youth we serve. Turning The Corner operates a 30-day shelter and assessment program, a program for adolescents with developmental disabilities, two programs for adolescent males with abuse reactive issues, and a mental health wellness and recovery program. On any given day we provide as many as 40 youth and their families with a variety of services.
Our treatment population includes a diverse cross-section of youth (including LBGTQ youth) with histories of abuse, neglect and trauma – some with developmental disabilities, complex psychiatric diagnoses, sexual offense charges, substance abuse issues, gang affiliation, and issues of domestic violence. All have parents/caregivers who are unable to provide safety and stability for the youth at the present time.
The following are some of the services TTC matches to and plans for referred children, youth and families:
- psychosocial assessments, including DSM-V diagnosis;
- individual, group and family therapy;
- family reunification assessment and plan; and
- access to psychiatric services, including managing and monitoring the administration of medication, case management, and ARC methodology in residential and clinical services.
TTC is licensed by the Rhode Island Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF). It’s also a member agency of the Rhode Island Council of Resource Providers (RICORP), for children, youth and families.
