What’s the difference between a Residential Treatment Facility (RTF) and a Community Rehabilitative Residence (CRR)/ Host Home/Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC)?

A Residential Treatment Facility (RTF) is a 90-day authorization where children and teenagers live on a temporary basis to get treatment for severe emotional and/or behavioral disorders that cannot be managed in the community. CRR and TFC are for adolescents who can’t remain in the community with only natural resources, but don’t need the structure of an RTF program. With these services, the individual resides with a family extensively trained in working with children experiencing behavioral and emotional difficulty.
