ABOUT EAGLE HOUSE
We’re expanding! As one of the leading providers of children’s behavioral health services in the state, and one of the few who run a psychiatric residential treatment facility (PRTF) – our Eagle House – we are pleased to announce that we are expanding this program to serve even more children.
Eagle House provides residential behavioral health treatment for children ages 6-12 who are transitioning from psychiatric hospitalization. Serving as a "step-down," Eagle House helps prepare them for community-based treatment and a family or foster care setting.
Residents attend school onsite and receive intensive clinical support services, including ongoing nursing and psychiatry, family, group and individual therapy, and case management.
Professional staff at Eagle House use an active engagement/coaching/trauma-informed model of care to build relationships with the youth in order to stabilize them, help them improve overall functioning, and build the skills necessary to transition into a family successfully and permanently.
