Saint Joseph's Children's Home


PSYCHIATRIC SERVICES

St. Joseph's Children's Home is a psychiatric residential treatment facility (PRTF).  Treatment services for youth and children at St. Joseph's are under the care and supervision of our psychiatrist.  In some instances, a psychotropic medication is indicated as a portion of the recommended course of treatment.  As part of the initial evaluation process, newly admitted residents are seen weekly, by the psychiatrist, during the first month.  Frequent adjustments and medication changes can be made easily in the event a residents' difficulties pose greater complication.
