Overview of Program:
Northcutt Residential Treatment Center provides a safe, healing environment for boys between the ages of 6 and 12 who are victims of trauma. These children have experienced physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. They have been neglected. They have witnessed the abuse of family members. The innocence of their childhood has been taken from them. As a result of their trauma history, they engage in high-risk behaviors, self-harm, aggressive, defiant, or oppositional behaviors. They exhibit symptoms of anxiety and depression. Without treatment these children are at risk of growing up to experience significant health and mental health effects later in life. We take a multi-disciplinary, individualized approach to teach, encourage and support each boy's healing process to a new way of life.

Northcutt Residential Treatment Center's services are grounded in the philosophy of Trauma-Informed Care, an evidence-based practice which has demonstrated positive outcomes for victims of trauma. Using a multi-disciplinary team approach, we wrap services around the child and family to help them heal, and to transition back to home, school, and the community.
