Victor Treatment Center

Victor Treatment Center in Santa Rosa is a Short Term Residential Treatment Program (STRTP) located in scenic Sonoma County, surrounded by beautiful rolling hills covered with vineyards and other agricultural acreage. While we are located in Sonoma County, we serve Counties, SELPAs and School Districts across California and accept referrals from all counties. The City of Santa Rosa is a thriving community with many civic activities, events, and governmental resources.

Our program provides intensive residential treatment and specialty mental health services for youth struggling with safety and mental health challenges in less restrictive settings.  Many youth who come to Victor have experienced multiple placement failures and numerous hospitalizations and are in need of a safe, structured, and healing environment.  The primary objective is for each youth to reach his/her optimal level of functioning and return to their family or other appropriate less restrictive setting in the community.
