811. Victor Treatment Centers

A number of incidents involving alleged assault resulted in closure of one of the group homes / treatment facilities operated by Victor Treatment Centers. It seems that the facilities were either under-staffed or had not got any training in how to handle situations with teenagers who suffer from various mental issues.

According to their website they deal this target group:

Victor Treatment Centers, Inc. (VTC) exists to provide a healthy, healing living environment for severely emotionally disturbed children and youth who have such great needs that they are temporarily not able to succeed in family situations and/or lower levels of care.

Such a target group requires specially trained employees and if this is not the case, then it is better to close down or it would not be fun to be there as a teenager.

    Sadly, as a past employee who was affected by this closure, I can attest that a lot of the situations were out of our control at times and due to the high nature of calls to Law Enforcement, we often didn’t get help in a timely manner. I knew the staff and youth involved in all of these situations.
