Exclamation Residential Treatment Centers or Transitional Housing HELP

Hello all. I have Bipolar as well as Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I have been Bipolar since I was a young child. I am now 22. I was first diagnosed 4 years ago but resisted treatment. I was rediagnosed in February when my life started crashing down into a big depression. I then started feeling better but the Rapid Cycling began again. I am having no luck getting my meds straightened and really having difficult surviving in the real world. Luckily I have been in therapy the last 4 years but its not enough. Had to quit my jobs, stop volunteering, and then later moved in with my parents. Parts of somedays are okay but many types I burst into anger or burst into tears. There are times I am truly scared I will hurt myself severely.
Well anyways I have been looking into residential treatment centers because the structure and intense treatments seems like what I HAVE to go through to get back on the real world track. MY QUESTIONS ARE:
--If you (or someone you know) have gone to a RTC, which one and what was your experience like.
--If you know of any good programs RTC or something between that and outpatient
--ANY insight into what type of program to do. The internet hasnt been very helpful for me.

Thank you in advance for your time!
