Scottsdale Residential Treatment Center (RTC)

Located on a beautiful 10-acre campus in the heart of Scottsdale, Devereux Arizona’s 24-hour RTC and Therapeutic School, has the capacity to serve 48 children.  The RTC is a safe and supportive environment that provides youth, from the ages of five to 17, who are experiencing emotional, behavioral or substance abuse challenges. We also provide an on-site accredited K-12 therapeutic school, which offers an academic curriculum while students receive intensive behavioral and emotional support. 

Tucson Residential Treatment Center

Our Tucson center is a 10-bed facility that provides treatment to individuals 12-17 years of age who need psychiatric services.  Centrally located, our RTC campus provides both education and recreational therapy. We also provide an on-site accredited K-12 therapeutic school which provides Intensive Behavioral & Emotional Support for students in a safe environment while focusing on academics.

RTCYouth Profiles

The youth we support may present the following challenges:

  • social or skills deficits
  • limited/unhealthy coping skills
  • verbal/physical aggression 
  • emotional/behavioral difficulties impacting overall functioning

Our youth may have experienced severe trauma in their young lives, including physical and sexual abuse, neglect and abandonment. As a result, these youth have complex needs that require highly structured programming and individualized treatment approaches.

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

PBIS is a proactive approach to establishing behavioral supports and social culture needed for youth to achieve social, emotional and academic success. Attention is focused on creating and sustaining multi-tiered systems of support that improve lifestyle results (personal, health, social, family, recreation) for all youth by making targeted misbehavior less effective, efficient, and relevant, and desired behavior more functional. The premise of PBIS is that continual teaching, combined with acknowledgement or feedback of positive behavior will reduce unnecessary discipline and promote a climate of greater productivity, safety and learning. PBIS, in addition with Devereux’s unique training methods, provide children and adolescents ample opportunities to develop their own strengths and learn how to manage one’s own behavior.
