As some of you may have read on general, the foundation that runs the 3 Residential Treatment Center (RTC)'s here in town plus many other services is shutting down those RTCs as well as their foster care services. Saying that, it hits hard here in the tweedle household. wm is in a foundation foster home; kt is currently in one of those RTCs. I believe that wm's foster mum & dad are currently being licensed with another provider & are going to see wm thru HS & beyond. Phew/whew. Foster care ends 12/31/09 kt will be discharged from Residential Treatment Center (RTC) mid January ~ Residential Treatment Center (RTC) closes 2/1/10. I know that the Child Guidance Clinic is still alive & well; psychiatrist will still be around as well as mental health CM (though he may be gone by the end of 2010.) NOW, if you don't mind I need to scream. I'm terrified from the loss of resources. Between tweedle dee & dum there have been 7 stays at Residential Treatment Center (RTC). When kt & wm began to spiral out of control I could count on mental health CM getting them admitted to Residential Treatment Center (RTC). These facilities & programs are the experts in Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) & PTSD; most of their clients are adopted/foster kids. Their expertise is widely accepted. There are other resources in this foundation that we've taken advantage of; art therapy, day treatment, etc. All gone. I'm beyond frustrated & a "tad" anxious. Me & parents of about 9500 other kids. Thanks for the ear - just needed to get that out of my system.
