Individual, family-focused treatment
Each child receives an individual treatment plan targeting the child’s specific goals to encourage a timely and safe return to the community. The treatment team encourages each child’s family and community members to engage in treatment, which often facilitates a more seamless and effective transition once inpatient services are concluded.
How it is funded
Clients receiving PRTS are funded either by their family’s private insurance coverage or by Oregon Health Plan (OHP). Trillium contracts with many different private insurance companies. Please contact your health insurance company to determine if psychiatric residential care is covered through your plan. Clients with OHP are often referred through their County Family Care Coordinator, WrapAround Coordinator, or other OHP representative.
How we measure success
When children are in our residential treatment facility, our ultimate goal is prepare each child to return to their community safely and with the necessary skills to manage their mental health challenges. Each child is given an Individualized Plan of Care, which outlines areas of focus in treatment as well as long- and short-term goals to measuring the client’s progress in treatment. Goals are reviewed in formal meetings to discuss and review treatment progress and potential discharge from PRTS.
