ADOLESCENT YOUTH AGES 13–18

trauma-informed care

Serving girls ages 13 to 18 who struggle with significant mental health needs, often stemming from trauma, our Rosemont-based Residential Treatment Program provides intensive treatment services. The program is LGBTQI affirming.

We provide 24-hour supervision by counselors trained in trauma-informed care, crisis prevention and de-escalation, and Therapeutic Crisis Intervention™.

Our holistic approach to helping the youth and families to heal combines traditional mental health services with experiences to nurture the mind, body, and spirit, such as creative and expressive therapeutic art programs, physical fitness programs, and equine and pet-assisted therapies.

Gemma Services recently shared news of the decision to close the Residential Treatment Program on our Rosemont Campus only.  We are, however, accepting referrals for admissions to our Plymouth Meeting Residential Treatment Program for boys and girls. Please click here to read more.
