Residential Treatment Facility for Adults (RTF-A)

Threshold is preparing to open an RTF-A (Residential Treatment Facility for Young Adults) in conjunction with Berks County MH/ID and Community Care Behavioral Health Organization. We are working on obtaining a license from the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services.

The RTF-A is a trauma-informed therapeutic treatment environment located in a home in Wernersville, PA. The program is intended for young adults ages 18-25 years old. The RTF-A is staffed 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. The young adults will receive trauma-informed care that focuses on teaching individuals how to manage their mental health symptoms while simultaneously learning the skills needed to live independently when discharged from the RTF-A. The projected length of stay will be two years. Individuals must have Medical Assistance, a mental health diagnosis and be unable to live in a less restrictive environment. 

Upon admission to the program, the following services are provided as part of the individual's treatment plan:

  • Psychiatric Evaluation and weekly psychiatric appointments including medication management
  • Multidisciplinary Treatment Team Approach
  • Comprehensive, Ongoing Trauma-informed Treatment Planning
  • Discharge Planning from beginning of treatment to create goals toward the individual's future endeavors.
