SUPERVISED RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM


This is a 20-bed transitional housing program for severely and persistently mentally ill single adults referred from hospitals, clinics, and government and private agencies. This program provides intensive 24-hour, 7-days-a-week supervision to help prepare clients for the move to greater independence. A broad range of case management and daily living skill supports help clients transition to more self-reliant community-based living. This program also has an off-site Day Treatment Program component. Consumers receive ongoing assessment and service planning, individual and group counseling, case management, medication supervision, symptom management, health and nutrition monitoring and education, as well as skill development services and training in self-advocacy and socialization. As soon as a consumer is able, he or she graduates to the next level of our continuum of care ladder of independence.
