Palmetto Summerville Behavioral Health- Summerville

Palmetto Summerville Behavioral Health Residential Treatment Center (RTC) is located in Summerville, SC, and provides treatment for male adolescents who require a highly-structured, supervised, and therapeutic environment.

Palmetto Summerville provides residential treatment for children and adolescents ages 7 to 21 suffering from a variety of psychiatric illnesses (e.g., Conduct Disorder, Mood Disorder, ADHD, PTSD and Substance Abuse). Palmetto Summerville specializes in treating youth with severe behavioral and psychiatric conditions, chemical dependency, sexually reactive behaviors, and trauma. Trauma focused –CBT, 30-60-90 day diagnostic assessment or crisis stabilization, dual diagnosis, and low functioning tracks are offered. All tracks include individual, family, and group counseling.


Palmetto Summerville Behavioral Health's (PSBH) philosophy of treatment begins with treating all residents, resident families, and others with dignity and respect. PSBH does not discriminate regarding admission of residents based on upon age, race, religion, or social status.


Residents move through a Behavior Management Phase System, which reflects their internalized awareness and integrated growth. Each phase identifies key tasks and clinical interventions designed to produce specific outcomes and to bring about healthy change. Our Behavior Management Phase System provides an overall framework for treatment and is designed to be flexible in order to meet the unique needs and time constraints of each individual.

We provide the expertise to address (1) behavioral and sexual reactive disorders; (2) affective disorders; (3) substance abuse screening/assessment; and (4) trauma based disorders.


The program subscribes to an integrated and developmental model of treatment whereby we view psychiatric problems as a complex and multi-faceted phenomenon. The physical, emotional, medical, spiritual, and social needs of each resident are identified and addressed by a carefully selected staff of professionals. Focus is placed on areas such as behavior/conduct, mood, attachment, trauma, family systems, self development, Learning factors and biological antecedents. We place great emphasis on understanding and assessing the unique aspects of each individual based on a review of the key areas mentioned. Palmetto Summerville uses this information to develop a comprehensive psychiatric assessment. We use the results of this assessment to identify key problem areas and to build a detailed clinical/action plan for that individual. Our goal is to develop objective and precise treatment interventions designed to bring about change in the individual being treated. Palmetto Summerville uses a multi-disciplinary approach to treatment that includes obtaining input and buy-in from the residents.
