Specialized Residential

Our programs offer a spectrum of choices from lower intensity to highly intensive residential treatment, as well as semi-independent and community living.

Specialized Residential: Low  Moderate Intensity

Clinical, administrative, and direct care professional teams are committed to helping individuals successfully navigate daily life challenges and transition back into their communities.

Hope Network teams recognize that the majority of individuals needing this level of care have likely experienced chronic stress throughout their lives, and so each program provides trauma-informed behavioral health interventions. All staff are trained in The Culture of Gentleness, which is focused on the belief that change and progress occur when individuals feel safe and supported by those around them.

Program teams partner with each resident to set personal goals and reflect upon their individual strengths, needs, values, preferences, and abilities. Residents are supported in building skills that help them achieve their highest level of independence. Residents are also encouraged to be involved in their local community while receiving treatment in these programs, and do so independently and also with the support of trained program staff.

Programs serve adults with a variety of behavioral health challenges including:

Mood changes from very high to very low, or an ongoing period of feeling down or uniquely energetic
Behaving in bizarre, anxious, fearful, erratic or odd ways that are outside the norm
Flashbacks, nightmares, severe emotional stress due to a specific incident or circumstances
Chronic and/or immediate drug or alcohol related issues along with mental health challenges
Adults who hear voices or see things others don’t on a regular basis
Instances of physical and verbal aggression
Instances of causing physical harm to oneself or someone else
Challenges with remaining involved in treatment
Ready for discharge from a more restrictive treatment environment
Challenges in a current treatment environment and anticipation that an increase in services may improve stability
