Turning the Corner (TTC) Residential Treatment Programs provides services for adolescent and young male adults ages 12 – 21 with behavioral problems.
Our programs are designed to meet both adolescent and family needs, ranging from the basics of shelter and safety to the complex longer-term needs of the youth we serve. Turning The Corner operates a 30-day shelter and assessment program, a program for adolescents with development disabilities, two programs for adolescent males with abuse reactive issues, and a mental health wellness and recovery program. On any given day we provide as many as 40 youth and their families with a variety of services.
Our treatment population includes a diverse cross-section of youth (including LBGTQ youth) with histories of abuse, neglect and trauma – some with developmental disabilities, complex psychiatric diagnoses, sexual offense charges, substance abuse issues, gang affiliation, and issues of domestic violence. All have parents or caregivers who are unable to provide safety and stability for the youth at the present time.
