Parent-Operated Residential Treatment Program
Our Parent–Operated Residential Treatment Program (PORT) is a long-term treatment program for children between 7 and 17 years of age who require support and guidance within a home environment, or who require a step-down placement from a more intensive staff-operated residential program.
PORT is designed to mirror as closely as possible the normal routines of daily living as a family.
