SCO Residential Treatment Facility Receives $600,000 Grant

August 1, 2018 / Madonna Heights News

Dix Hills, NY  SCO was awarded a 3-year, $600,000 contract from the NYS Office of Mental Health to enhance services at our Madonna Heights Residential Treatment Facility (RTF) that provides intensive residential mental health services for adolescent girls.

The goal of the pilot is to reduce the amount of time residents stay in the RTF by focusing on community reintegration and providing a host of after-care resources to keep young people connected. It will also offer RTF residents and families the opportunity to have an active and meaningful voice in all decisions that affect them.
