Regional Diagnostic Treatment Center (RDTC) Services

 

 

Overview                                                                                          8-29-2011

 

Regional Diagnostic and Treatment Centers (RDTCs) were established to provide services to children and families where abuse or neglect has been identified.  The RDTCs offer a wide-range of services, from medical evaluation to therapeutic intervention.  Each RDTC is equipped with a staff of specialists trained in the area of child-on-child sexual abuse and child-on-child sexual activity.

 

Child-on-child sexual abuse cases require a mandatory referral to an RDTC by the Worker.  Although referrals to RDTCs are not mandatory in a child-on-child sexual activity case, Workers shall encourage families to utilize these services.
