RTF (Residential Treatment Facility) Group

The RTF Group coordinates identified behavioral health treatment for Allegheny County's children and adolescents up to age twenty-one. It is the single point of contact for referrals in Allegheny County. RTF Treatment is a short term, out of home placement in a Residential Treatment Facility that provides intensive behavioral health services in a 24-hour staff secure setting.

The RTF Group offers individualized case management by processing RTF referrals, assisting the family in identifying a treatment program for their child and continuous monitoring while the child is in an RTF. Our case managers work closely with families and providers to ensure the delivery of quality services. We participate as part of a team to plan for ongoing mental health treatment, discharge planning and re-integration back into the community.
