A variety of community-based and residential treatment programs for at-risk youth. According to statutes, adolescents in need of services are required to be placed in the least restrictive setting considered appropriate for their individual needs.
Young persons generally enter the youth services system through the courts. Multi-disciplinary teams at the community level advise juvenile court judges regarding appropriate placements.
The Youth Treatment Center is one component of the continuum of services available for at-risk youth. YTC is a long-term residential program providing education, health, and social services to address the multiple problems of high-risk youth.
