Residential Treatment Center (RTC)
Help Serve Alaska by Providing Family and Child Centered Services With Unconditional Care.

Residential Treatment Center (RTC)

FCSA offers a safe, welcoming therapeutic environment with its Residential Treatment Center (RTC), providing services designed to meet the individual needs of children ages 12 to 18. FCSA can help children who are experiencing issues with: mental health challenges, anger management, homicidal thoughts, lack of focus and concentration, suicidal thoughts, running away, defiance for authority, self-harm, and family relationship challenges.

Our goal is to build trust and stability while providing a structured, safe program for children to learn and grow in. An individualized treatment plan is developed for each client by our multidisciplinary team of professionals which include a psychiatrist, nurses, teachers, therapists, dietician, and mental health technicians.

These professionals work with the family to develop an interactive, flexible, and safe environment for positive change. We provide high quality individual, group, and family therapy, individual treatment planning, skill groups, coping skills, medication education/management, daily living skills, activities and exercise center, an onsite year-round school program, community outings, and family participation.

Midnight Sun Academy is the school located within the Residential Treatment Center. Our academic program is designed to allow students the opportunity to continue their education. Students attend school five days a week during the school year and are enrolled as members of the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District. The education program also operates a two month summer school session. In addition to core academic areas, all students are offered daily recreation in the full sized gymnasium. Special education staff oversee Individual Education Plans for students and other services including occupational, physical, and speech therapy as required.

We enjoy a collaborative relationship with many state and local agencies and programs, including the Department of Labor, Alaska Works Partnership Program, Fairbanks Arts Association, and the University of Alaska providing educational opportunities for students. The Alaska Division of Vocational Rehabilitation provides important quality transitional services for our students and we also have an excellent working relationship with Adult Learning Programs of Alaska (ALPA) providing instruction and assessments in readying students for the GED exams as appropriate.
