The Bethesda Family Services Foundation Community Based Residential Treatment Center serves girls ages 12 - 18 in a therapeutic home / community environment. Most importantly, our services restore and strengthen the girls' family relationships.
Bethesda has a long successful history of providing residential and outpatient behavioral health services to troubled youth and families. Our program focuses on healing the girls' wounded hearts and spirits, a Model developed by Bethesda Founder, Dominic Herbst.
Many of the girls we serve are those with histories of violence or other types of trauma. We provide trauma focused services designed specifically to take special care in handling and addressing the consequences of trauma in the individual and to facilitate healing.
