- 30 to 40% of the clients at adolescent residential treatment centers are adopted.
- Adopted teens are 7 times more likely to end up in youth residential treatment centers.

When problems arise with adopted adolescents that can no longer be dealt with at home, thousands of these adopted individuals and their families are treated with a “cookie cutter” approach at residential facilities that are geared for the general adolescent population rather than for the specific needs of adopted adolescents and their families.

Among the myriad residential treatment centers for youth nationwide, not one has been designed and created explicitly for helping adopted teens and their families...until now.

TPC operates out of an adoption-based paradigm and is the first and only residential treatment center that focuses solely on the unique needs of adopted adolescents and their families.
Learn more about what we do and discover how our experienced team of caring, compassionate adoption-informed therapists, paired with our unique comprehensive approach, can make a difference in the lives of adopted adolescents—and their families— who are struggling.
