We are a psychiatric hospital, since 1879, with 18 units serving ages from 13-up with four programs- Psycho-social, Cognitive Behavior, Restorations, and Admissions. Interns have the opportunity to go through a 2 week training, including Verbal Defense and Influence, and physical containment techniques, and observe on all units to determine which unit and population they would like to concentrate their work on. We have many RTs who have worked over 30 years here and have a total of 15 CTRSs within a department of 30 people. Come and join our professional department for your school and NCTRC requirements.
