Our comprehensive clinical program utilizes Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), group process, individual therapy, psychiatric care, experiential process, family program, and other evidence-based practices. We address the whole client, and our individualized process of evaluation is ongoing, so that we address the needs of clients as they emerge.

Personal Responsibility and Greater Opportunity

At Lifeskills, residents focus on transitional preparedness and enhancing self-care skills, including personal responsibility for one’s needs for daily living, while they actively engage in psychiatric treatment. The goal for all of Lifeskills’ clients is to be prepared to take on the challenges of the next phase of their lives.

Lifeskills’ treatment program promotes wellness and re-integration into life beyond treatment. Supervised outings to support groups, shopping trips, recreational activities, and cultural activities give clients experience in interacting with the community in a supported way. As clients begin to take more responsibility for their future, they have the chance to pursue employment and educational opportunities.

Supervised Residential Treatment Facilities

Our residential treatment facilities are supervised 24 hours per day, and clients reside in gender-specific townhouses. There, they take on the tasks of daily living, such as meal preparation, housekeeping, and participating in the residential community. The units are spacious and modern, and in immediate proximity to clinical services and campus amenities such as the Lifeskills pool, which provides exercise and relaxation.
