On October 21, 2019, the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) announced plans to strengthen services and programming at its three Youth Rehabilitation and Treatment Centers (YRTCs) to create a continuum of care. The YRTCs serve juvenile offenders 14 through 18 years old who are placed there by the courts. The goals are to create a system that provides an appropriate level of care for youth and security as they progress in treatment. The system will provide targeted interventions to high-acuity, at-risk youth separate from the core group of youth who are positively responding to programming . . .
