Residential Rehabilitation Services


“Housing is a human right.  There can be no fairness or justice in a society in which some live in homelessness, or in the shadow of that risk, while others can not even imagine it.”- Jordan Flaherty


The Residential Rehabilitation Program (RRP) at Cornerstone Montgomery offers support through all phases of recovery.  Ranging from 24-hour supervised housing to targeted case management drop in services, individuals in our Residential Rehabilitation Program work with staff to learn the skills necessary to live independently in the community.  All services offered are dependent upon individual client need, diagnosis and referral recommendations from the Local Behavioral Health Authority.  All referrals for RRP services originate with the Local Behavioral Health Authority (LBHA) who then review applications, and manage the wait list for Montgomery County.  The LBHA will refer individuals to Cornerstone Montgomery if there is an open placement that would meet that individuals needs and recovery goals.  Once an application is received, our intake department will contact the individual to set up a face to face intake.  Depending on the individual's current location, and available placements the intake department works with the Rehabilitation department to determine the placement with the best chance of success.  Applicants will participate in a visit process where they meet with the staff, peers, and entitlements department to gain a better understanding of their benefits as well as program expectations.  During this visit process staff will meet with the applicant to  assess their individual needs and appropriateness for the placement.  This is also a time for the applicant to determine if this placement is a good fit for them.   Visits typically last between 5-7 days, after which the supervisor and manager meet to discuss how the visits went and whether the client will benefit from RRP services.  


We have two specialized RRP sites - Dialectical Behavior Treatment (DBT) and Integrated Treatment for Co-Occurring Disorders (ITCOD).


The DBT program, specializes in working with individuals diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder.  Residents participate in skils training at home and with clinical providers.  Participants are required to utilize Cornerstone Montgomery's DBT certified Psychiatrist and Therapists.


The ITCOD Program, focuses on integrating mental health and substance use disorder treatments for individuals who are dually diagnosed.  Participants are required to utilize Cornerstone Montgomery's Outpatient Mental Health Clinic services with a therapist and psychiatrist assigned to the ITCOD program.
