RES-PECTRestraint Elimination System Practical Control Techniques The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services initiated the ―Bring the Kids Home Project‖ in the late 1990’s. This project mandated a return of Alaska children back to their State of origin. In 2006 alone, 743 youth were placed out-of-state at a cost of $40 million to the Medicaid system. At any given time, 400-500 children were being cared for in out-of-state treatment centers. RES-PECT was created to help local Alaskan mental health agencies prepare staff to competently meet the needs of the returning Alaska children who had previously been placed in out-of-state residential or community based facilities.
