Harbor House I Intensive Residential Program
Harbor House I offers rehabilitation and recovery to 59 male and female mentally ill chemical abusers 18 and over who are in need of long-term residential treatment. Harbor House I operates as a modified therapeutic community offering a systematic treatment approach that is guided by an explicit perspective on the drug use disorder, mental illness, the person, recovery and right living. The therapeutic community consists of the social environment, peers, and staff who, as role models of successful personal change serve as guides in the recovery process. Thus, the community is the context in which change occurs and the method for facilitating change.
An integrated team of board certified psychiatrists, registered psychiatric nurses, licensed social workers and certified alcohol and substance abuse counselors provide individualized treatment tailored to different diagnoses and varying levels of functioning with the goal of enhancing patient quality of life. Most residents are discharged back into the community with the life skills needed to be self-sufficient and drug-free.
