RTF Regulations Available for Review
March 21, 2007

The Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) provided current proposed Residential Treatment Facility (RTF) regulations to the OMHSAS Advisory Council and stakeholder groups, including PCPA. The regulation preamble and complete text are available from the links as PDF files. (Please note before printing that the proposed regulations are a 167 page document.) RTF provider members are encouraged to review these regulations, consider their impact on operations and services, and provide comments to PCPA via email to Connell O’Brien.

RTF Work Group to Discuss Proposed Regulations
A meeting of the joint PCPA and Pennsylvania Council of Children, Youth and Family Services RTF work group is planned for April 10 at the Child Welfare Training Center. The agenda and logistic details will be sent to the work group and the PCPA Children’s Committee. The primary focus of the meeting is to discuss the proposed regulations and assess their impact on clients, families, service delivery, and the operational and fiscal implications.
