We serve children and adolescents 5-17 years of age. Our clients a have a mental health diagnosis from a Licensed Psychiatrist/Psychologist. They must meet medical necessity criteria provided by their ISP team. Typical clients have exhibited a pattern of moderate to severe behavioral impairment sustained over a prolonged period of time. This includes children/adolescents experiencing mood or behavioral disturbances due to physical, sexual and/or emotional abuse or other trauma history. Some clients have a history of premature sexualization related to their former childhood victimization experiences. 


DTAC's ARRTS program is a community-based program designed to stabilize children and adolescents in their home, school and pro-social environments.

Authorized services range in intensity from 5-15 hours per week. 

The program provides a specialized sexuality tract for youth who are acting out in a sexually inappropriate manner. All clients within this tract receive therapy that specializes in sexual dependencies. Treatment methods include intensive individual psychotherapy, weekly group therapy sessions and psycho educational family counseling. 

The program operates primarily during after school hours during the school year and offers more flexible individualized scheduling during the summer months. The staff accompanies clients to and from their home, school, outpatient office and community support environments to ensure consistent application of behavioral interventions in those settings. For clients in crisis, 24 hour on-call pager service is available.
