Overview

The RTF-B is a co-educational 24-bed Medicaid-funded, long-term psychiatric treatment facility for teenagers. Residents must be at least 12 and not yet 16 at the time of admission, and must be referred by the New York City Pre-Admission Certification Committee operated by the New York State Office of Mental Health.

The PACC will generally only refer youngsters who have had multiple unsuccessful placements and/or hospitalizations, and because of their psychiatric or emotional difficulties cannot be maintained in any less intensively-supervised setting. Most residents are admitted from acute care psychiatric units, State Children's Psychiatric Centers, other long-term psychiatric treatment programs (usually RTFs), or the juvenile justice system. Patients must be of normal intelligence and not so seriously physically challenged as to be unable to participate in routine activities with their peers. The PACC generally requires that these beds be reserved for residents of New York City. The RTF-B has no other admission requirements except provision of various Medicaid-mandated documentation.
