Transitional Residential Treatment

These services provide up to 90 days’ of residential treatment though the average length of stay is about 60 days. Treatment stays are determined on a case-by-case basis depending upon clinical need and the guidelines set forth by the referring agency. The program provides a highly structured experience, which includes, day treatment services and group meetings emphasizing “real live” opportunities for cooperative living. Clients are able to explore and test relationships in a safe and secure environment.

Their rehabilitation and recovery occurs in the context of  an “intentional community”.  Having tasks associated with maintaining a household where cleaning, meal planning and cooking serves a practical purpose along with reinstilling the ability to function autonomously while emphasizing individual responsibility. Using the household milieu as a primary therapeutic tool, residents learn to build and maintain relationships, develop the skills of self-care in daily living, and utilize community resources for moving into the community following treatment.. All residential programs are licensed through the Department of Health Care Service.
