The options for residential mental health care are widely varied to meet the many different needs of those with mental health disorders. For many people, a short-term residential treatment that lasts between 30 to 90 days is sufficient to help them get back on track and return to everyday life. However, individuals with severe mental health disorders have more complex needs that require more long-term care.
Rose Hill Center in Holly, MI is recognized as one of the nation’s top long-term residential mental health facilities. We realize the need for extended residential living services that provide individuals with continuing guidance and support in a less-restrictive setting than residential rehabilitation services. Our extended living program offers moderate support and structure to help with the transition to independent living. Contact us at 866.367.0220 to learn more.
What Are Extended Residential Services?
Mental health disorders do not pop up overnight but develop over time. Thus, there are no miracle cures. Effective treatment occurs over time, with individuals gradually stepping down to less restrictive levels of care. Extended residential living services are a step between residential treatment and transitional living programs.
At Rose Hill Center, our extended residential services allow you more time to engage in treatment in a therapeutic community where you have support from a proper peer group. Through this program, you become an active agent of change in your life as you learn and integrate critical life skills to increase self-sufficiency and greater independence.
Our extended residential program provides:
- On-campus housing with a more traditional home atmosphere
- 24/7 access to support staff
- On-site doctors and therapists
- Organized volunteer and social activities
- Community meals
- Individual supervision as clinically directed
- Medication management
- Access to campus facilities and amenities
- Case management services
Extended residential services are ideal for individuals with severe mental health disorders and co-occurring disorders who have struggled with chronic relapse and need intensive life skills development.
Five Benefits of Extended Living Services
The average residential mental health treatment stay is a minimum of six months. However, some individuals benefit from more treatment and stay for 12 to 18 months or longer. Extended residential services allow individuals to become fully immersed in therapy within a community of peers with shared challenges and goals for recovery. This community involvement fosters the development of accountability, responsibility, communication skills, and healthy relationship skills.
Other extended residential services benefits can include:
- A safe, supportive living environment with structure and routines
- Physical fitness programs and high-quality nutrition
- Resources and advocacy for families
- Access to therapy and individualized treatment planning
- Peer support
Residents in our extended residential program contribute to the Rose Hill Center and surrounding communities by achieving meaningful daily activities. Our work teams replicate the real-world work environment. Residents can work in housekeeping, the kitchen, horticulture, and our farm animal care program. Like all of our programs, extended living services prepare you to function in the world the best you can.
