Comprehensive residential treatment for children.

Our Purpose

St. Vincent's Villa provides comprehensive behavioral health treatment within a therapeutic, residential setting for children ages 12 and younger who have not adequately responded to community-based interventions. Our licensed and accredited programs consist of a 90-day Diagnostic, Evaluation and Treatment Program and a Residential Treatment Center (RTC). St. Vincent's Villa is committed to partnering with families and to providing compassionate, trauma-informed care.

Who We Serve

We serve children ages 12 and younger whose behavioral and emotional needs have not responded to community based interventions and services.

Our multi-disciplinary team works together in partnership with families to develop and implement individualized treatment plan that addresses the therapeutic needs of the child and family.
St. Vincent’s Villa is comprised of two residential programs: A 90-day Diagnostic, Evaluation, and Treatment Program, licensed by the Maryland Department of Human Services, and a Residential Treatment Center (RTC), licensed by the Maryland Behavioral Health Administration.

Our nonpublic school is approved by the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE). Our diagnostic school is licensed by the Department of Human Services and approved as a Type III school by MSDE.
