What To Expect
The Cottages on Mountain Creek* provides 24-hour housing and care for individuals living with mental illness. From a hospital or home setting, residents enter our 24/7 Stabilization Program which is supervised 24-hours a day.
We provide a seamless care program wherein our psychotherapist, psychopharmacologist and adjunct therapists work together to provide various levels of treatment and living arrangements. The Cottages also coordinates care to work with our residents who seek volunteer positions, re-entry into college and/or the workforce.
The length of stay at The Cottages on Mountain Creek will vary according to individual needs. The severity of symptoms and response to our programming will determine the total length of stay and cost of the program. See the FAQ page for more info.
