Oregon’s Children’s System strives to offer a comprehensive continuum of care. We work with communities to build and support trauma-informed treatment programs that can serve mental health needs close to home.
Because day and residential treatment options are an essential part of a holistic continuum of care, Oregon’s Children’s System includes providers across the state that operate evidence based and trauma informed residential treatment programs for children and youth with mental health conditions that cannot be safely treated in their home, school and community based programs.
Throughout Oregon, private agencies operate intensive psychiatric services at a variety of levels of care. Depending on the agency, youth with commercial insurance and/or Oregon Health Plan receive appropriate levels of care.
Sometimes referred to as “partial hospitalization,” this level of care offers:
Day treatment programs are usually provided during school hours. They offer education services in collaboration with the mental health treatment providers.
Research shows that to best meet children's mental and behavioral needs, children and families should have treatment options in their communities. But sometimes community-based programs cannot safely manage the challenges of a youth’s mental health needs.

The SAGE Residential program provides long-term stabilization for survivors of Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) ages 11 to 17.
SAGE stands for: Support, Achieve their goals, Grow, and become Empowered.
CSEC survivors have very complex histories and have experienced multiple traumas. Referrals are usually made through the juvenile justice or Child Welfare systems. But referrals may also come from schools, hospitals, or a youth’s parent.
SAGE offers CSEC survivors treatment instead of punishment. Services are designed to teach participants pro-social alternatives that will help create long-term wellness.
