Liberty Point Behavioral Healthcare’s community-based residential program is for young men who need treatment in a 24-hour supervised therapeutic setting but do not require a secure environment. The program addresses co-occurring psychiatric conditions and intellectual disabilities while allowing residents to live in a residential neighborhood of Staunton, approximately three miles from the main residential campus.
Youth in this program are at minimal risk for elopement or other dangerous behaviors and are motivated to develop independent living skills so that they can return home or to an independent living program. Many of the young men in this program have successfully completed our secure residential program and are prepared for more independence in a completely unsecured and community-based environment.
These young men are able to start accessing a variety of community supports, may obtain gainful employment, or volunteer experience. Residents participate in a series of interventions and activities designed to help them experience and achieve competence with adaptive functioning and independent living skills. They learn to cook for themselves and others, maintain a healthy living environment, access community supports, live and work in a suburban community and fill their leisure time with pro-social and productive activities.
