cover of The NSDUH Report September 18, 2008: Out-of-Home Services for Emotional or Behavioral Problems among Youths Aged 12 to 17: 2002 to 2006

Combined data from 2002 to 2006 indicate that an estimated 2.6 percent of youths aged 12 to 17 reported receiving out-of-home services for emotional or behavioral problems in the past 12 months in a hospital, a residential treatment center, or a foster care or therapeutic foster care setting. Among youths aged 12 to 17 who received any type of out-of-home services for emotional or behavioral problems in the past 12 months, about half reported staying only for 1 or 2 nights. The reported length of time spent in out-of-home service settings in the past year varied by gender; in general, male youths aged 12 to 17 were more likely to report having stayed for 1 night, while their female counterparts were more likely to report having stayed for 7 nights or longer.
