Residential Psychiatric Program

Therapeutic treatment that is highly specialized

It is the mission of Project Transition to help those in recovery from serious mental illness to reclaim independence and live meaningful, sustainable lives.   Our residential treatment community model offers medication management, skill development, wellness coaching, relationship building and supervised independent living. We promote sustainable recovery through three main areas of focus:


  • The treatment and self-management of psychiatric difficulties (with or without co-occurring substance use)
  • The restoration of functioning, relationships, and self-direction
  • Reintegration into the community


We believe that personal recovery can and does occur, even in the presence of painful struggles and setbacks.  Here at Project Transition we practice the concept of a “human bridge” — as a person navigates their journey toward increased autonomy, his or her relationships with staff and peers remain constant and meaningful. Over time, as the intensity of support and the need for supervision gradually recedes, important relationships are sustained and confidence grows. When setbacks occur, multiple safety nets are already in place in the form of “community”.

"I know what it is like to sell myself and a brand new pair of sneakers for drugs. I know what its like to walk around the streets with only socks on. But I no longer have to live that way. My family no longer has to worry about me. Project Transition means that I have hope and recovery. It means I have a second chance at life."


"Project Transition has taught me how to be an adult when others told me I was unfixable. PT will always be in my heart. I've been sober for 5 years and recently moved out of the program. Thank you Project Transition."

"PT is helping me on my road to recovery. They offer support to reach my personal goals. Staff help guide me, showing me a new way to live. My life has new meaning today..... I now have goals and projects to work on. I am productive and am becoming a better mother and person."

Jennifer S

"PT I couldn't see how good you've been to me. Over the years, throughout the days, you've always been in my corner I must say. Times were bad and times were good, you helped me to lay down my hood. Now I'm shining not conniving, working it out my system what shucking and jiving. So I'm striving to be the best that I can be, for all to see, Thank you, PT..."


"Project Transition means I have a second chance at a new life. PT taught me how to love and believe in myself. It also taught me to forgive people in my past. I thought I would never get better but PT taught me different. They believed in me and made it easier to trust in myself."

"My son has been in many programs and far too many hospitals. Project Transition is different; it is actually helping him to live a better life. The staff and members of PT care for one another... it’s a form of community that is sorely lacking elsewhere."

Wendy P, mother of a PT member

"Our daughter has endured mental illness for years… we have worked with many professionals and programs. Without question, Project Transition’s help and support have been the most effective.”

John P, father of a PT member

" Project Transition has been a life saver to me. I was mentally Ill and felt like I was in a box that I thought I could never get out of. I lost everything and could not function...but now I have confidence in myself. I needed help in all areas of my life but now have a path and a purpose. Life is worth living."

"The family support groups and seminars are focused and helpful. We feel understood."
