Intensive Residential Treatment Services (IRTS)

Robin was so depressed that she could not get out of bed for days.  She was barely eating and had thoughts of suicide. Now she was hospitalized for the third time this year.  Robin’s family felt she needed more than hospital treatment to get her life back on track. The hospital social worker referred her to Touchstone Residential Treatment for services and support as she transitions home.  While in the program, Robin learned about her mental illness and new skills to help manage her emotions and symptoms.

When people, like Robin, are admitted to Touchstone’s Intensive Residential Treatment Services (IRTS) they are at an emotionally and mentally difficult time in their lives.   Residential Treatment offers 24-hour mental health services in a structured, supportive environment designed to improve mental health stability, increase personal and emotional skills, self-sufficiency and independence.
