Long Term Structured Residence (LTSR) is a licensed 16 bed facility that provides a highly structured 24/7 recovery environment for adults diagnosed with a serious and persistent mental illness who have struggled to maintain their recovery in the community.  The two LTSR’s are located less than a mile from one another and combine programming daily, where residents are offered a unique opportunity to engage in a variety of therapeutic activities meant to build healthy minds and bodies.  Supporting individuals toward personal recovery and meaningful integration into the greater community is our overarching goal.  We utilize multiple clinical approaches, including but not limited to:  Cognitive Remediation, Peer Support, Expressive Therapy, Mindfulness/Yoga training, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Medication Monitoring/Education and Contextual Rehabilitation.

Residents learn and practice independent living skills both within the LTSR and the larger Creative Health Services Outpatient program.  Residents are encouraged to practice these skills during supervised, planned activities in the surrounding area.  All residents are served by a multidisciplinary treatment team on site that is led by the CHS, Inc. Medical Director and includes:  Registered Nurses, Masters level mental health professionals, Mental Health Workers, Certified Peer Specialists, a cook and administrative support staff.  The treatment team works collaboratively with each resident’s family, friends and other supports to provide a comprehensive effort towards recovery.

Eligibility for LTSR:  Prospective residents, families of residents or referring professionals are encouraged to contact the Montgomery County Department of Behavioral Health to inquire about the referral process.

Individuals are supported toward recovery as they prepare to live independently in the community.

Recovery is possible for all who seek support from us as they work to achieve a full and satisfying life. Obstacles are viewed as challenges rather than barriers to success.

Community connectedness creates the environment in which people grow and succeed through the support of all members.

Recovery Principles

  • Hope is the belief in an individual’s potential to experience a full and satisfying life and that change is possible. Hope is the foundation for recovery.
  • Individuality is key, as recovery is a unique and personal journey. Embracing the individual, rather than dwelling on the illness, recovery respects a person’s cultural and spiritual differences along with their special needs.
  • Choice 
is encouraged as individuals make informed decisions about their lives and support systems, and these choices are respected.
  • Peer Support is a highly valued resource, offering hope through the unique empathy and understanding that is derived from peer relationships.
  • Community Integration 
is vital to connecting with and flourishing in the community of one’s choosing. An environment supportive of recovery provides access to community supports and resources that will best promote one’s own recovery, while living in and contributing to that community.
  • Personal Responsibility 
is foundational in life decisions and membership in the community at large. Steps to recovery are chosen and mastered by the individual, while contributing partners form a vital support network.
  • A Meaningful Life 
is one of purpose and direction, both chosen and carried out by every individual according to their talents, interests and passions. Pursuing relationships, vocations and activities adds richness and meaning to a person’s life, as well as to the life of the community.
  • Advocacy
 allows individuals to have a voice in their own recovery. All are offered opportunities and support to be his or her own advocate.
  • Access to Resources is necessary in moving toward wellness and recovery.  A variety of community resources, including: behavioral health services, self-help, education, advocacy groups and peer support can serve to promote holistic wellbeing in all individuals.
