Providing Structure and Support for Emotionally Fragile Boys and Girls

RTC_Sidebar_EdctnChcknBoyatCmputr.jpg
Our residential program provides intensive structure and support to emotionally fragile boys and girls ages 6-13 upon admission.

Green Chimneys’ Residential Treatment Center (RTC) accepts children from school districts across New York State and Connecticut. Admission is based on school district or agency referral and the individual needs of the child. Program costs are covered by the home school district and Department Social Services, although parents may choose to pay privately for their child’s tuition.

Our residential program provides intensive structure and support to emotionally fragile boys and girls 6-13 upon admission, who are coping with a variety of challenges related to:

  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders (including Asperger’s, High Functioning Autism (HFA) Disorder, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder)
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Impulse Control Disorder
  • Mood Disorder
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Reactive Attachment Disorder
  • School Phobia and Refusal

While we would like to be a resource for all children with special needs, we are not appropriately equipped to provide treatment for children who display active fire setting, problematic sexualized behavior, active psychosis or substance abuse, or who are adjudicated youth. In addition, we are unable to provide appropriate treatment for children with IQ’s below 70.

Please note that children referred with severe medical conditions or physical disabilities are evaluated on a case-by-case basis in order to assess our ability to meet their medical needs.

For more information or to schedule a tour, please contact Admissions
at 845.279.2995 x115 or submit a residential program inquiry form.
