Apartment Treatment Program - ATP
Apartments in this program are for residents who do not require 24-hour on-site supervision and have reached a level of functioning where need for staff assistance or training can be met through staff visits to the apartment. Residents in the Apartment Treatment Program have access to staff 24 hours a day for crisis intervention. Residents may remain in the ATP for as long as two years or while they continue to require services at this level. Emphasis, however, is placed on encouraging and assisting residents to move to their own community apartments or other appropriate housing setting.
