Crisis Residential Treatment (CRT) for Youth with Mental Health Needs

Located in Carmichael, California, Casa Carmichael is a Crisis Residential Treatment (CRT) Program that supports youth (ages 11-17) recovering from a behavioral health crisis. Unlike programs that are held in a psychiatric unit or hospital-like facility, Casa Carmichael provides a safe, home-like environment that supports youth in their recovery. During their stay, youth participate in a highly structured program and work with a team of specialists who help them resolve the behavioral or emotional issues associated with their crisis and provide the tools necessary to help them work through future challenges and re-integrate back in to the community.

THE NEED FOR CRT

Hospitalization can be expensive, unnecessary, and counterproductive to the recovery of individuals with behavioral health issues. Patients frequently need a level of care that is a step down from hospitalization, an environment that is not too restrictive yet has round the clock care by trained professionals. Crisis Residential Treatment (CRT) programs reduce unnecessary stays in psychiatric hospitals, act as a stepping stone for individuals transitioning back into the community after hospital discharge, reduce the frequency and expense of emergency room visits, and divert inappropriate incarcerations while producing the same, or improved outcomes compared to those of institutionalized care (Crisis Residential Program Study Report. California Mental Health Planning Council, 2010). Anka Behavioral Health, Inc. (Anka) operates nearly 20 CRT programs for youth and adults recovering from a psychiatric emergency or behavioral health crisis.
