RCC, or the Regional Crisis Center, is a PRTS/subacute residential facility where youth are placed directly from the Department of Human Services. RCC provides on-site residential living facilities, mental health treatment, family counseling, substance use disorders treatment, and academic instruction and education. RCC clients often display acute behaviors and have multiple cognitive or behavioral challenges. RCC uses verbal de-escalation tactics as well as treatments such as seclusion rooms and full-body restraints, when necessary, to ensure the safety of our clients.
