Long-term Structured Residence

Long-term Structured Residence provides a structured, trauma-informed recovery environment for adults dealing with the challenges of persistent and serious mental illness.

The program empowers individuals to make choices, attain life goals, build relationships and participate in community life to the best of their abilities and in the most integrated and independent manner that is safe for them. Staff work with individuals in developing a recovery plan that includes rehabilitative goals based on the unique hopes, dreams and desires of each individual.

Measuring outcomes involves the use of tools and focusing on measuring the opportunity for recovery, because measuring recovery is challenging as each individual’s recovery process is a unique and personal experience. We measure the opportunity for recovery by encouraging individuals to determine their path through recovery, within the confines of safety, and gauging where they are in their recovery journey.

Structure is offered through group psychotherapy, psychiatric rehabilitative services, individual psychotherapy, crisis support, medication management, peer support, training and support, as identified by the individual’s recovery treatment plan and overall rehabilitative goals.

Services are provided by a team of professionals, including:

  • Recovery support practitioners, individual recovery coaches and therapists who encourage positive life choices and create a safe encouraging environment for individuals to succeed or make mistakes.
  • Board certified psychiatrist who provides psychiatric evaluations and medication management. The psychiatrist completes an initial psychiatric evaluation upon an individual’s admission, and meets with each resident for half an hour a week, at a minimum.
