RTC programs for troubled teens

Do you know what factors should be considered when selecting a form of residential therapy for your troubled teen? And how do you know if a center is suitable for your child and family?  What works for one adolescent may not be appropriate for another. Each child and their family’s situation is different. Learning styles, insurance, religious affiliation, background, and finances are just some elements that define each center’s fitness. Getting it right can distinguish between a mediocre experience and a tremendously fulfilling one.

We’re an independent information services for hundreds of centers. We spend much time visiting and evaluating them on the road to verify that they are the best. After conducting such audits and from the ongoing reports from parents, we have a good understanding of the strengths, options, and staff expertise of each. We charge the center for our time versus you, so there is no cost to you.  Our assistance never affects what you pay these centers.  We can help you find the most suitable solution based on your income and your child’s needs. 



Care. Dignity. Respect. Therapy.
That’s the best treatment solution!

BCAS is not licensed or bonded to provide medical, psychological, or educational advice or recommendations, so we don't. You should consider seeking advice from a licensed professional before making any decision in relation to the placement of any child in a residential program. BCAS assists the admissions departments of schools as a communications contractor, from which it also receives compensation for its work. BCAS is indemnified by each organization and has no control over the actions of such organizations or their staff. BCAS is rarely on-campus of each program, so we do not know everything about what goes on, nor should we be held responsible for such information. We visit each campus periodically and get anecdotal feedback about each program from parents, which aids us in providing helpful options to individuals as they search for the program of their own best choice. By Federal law, we are required to mention that we select programs to represent solely based upon their desire for our assistance, and they pay us a flat fee based on each student placed. We receive no kickbacks for the amount of services the student requires, nor their length of stay in the school or program. Of the schools and programs we mention as options, we do not select them or push any particular ones based on their ability to pay us a higher amount than do other schools or programs. For some low-income individuals, we may mention schools that pay us nothing. Should we learn that a school has done anything inappropriate with students, such that it is being investigated by local or state authorities, we will immediately stop offering that school as an option. However, due to confidentiality agreements, we may not be able to express why the school or program is no longer included in our discussion or options list. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) caution that before you enroll a youngster in a private residential treatment program or any institution or service that we mention, be sure to check it out yourself: ask questions; ask for proof or support for claims about staff credentials, program licensing or accreditation, and endorsements; do a site visit; and get all policies and promises in writing.

Recovery and future avoidance of troubling behavior or actions and whatever effects that may have on the individual's life, their future, their career, their mental or physical health, or their friends and relatives are entirely dependent on each individual student and how they accept and apply the principles they are taught by the program, school or its staff or therapists.
