Maghakian Place offers Intensive Residential Treatment Services (IRTS) in a 16-bed facility for individuals across the gender spectrum. We create a community of individuals who support each other in learning how to better manage their mental illness and reduce the harmful effects of any substance use. 24/7 service is provided.

Who we serve

We serve individuals across the gender spectrum age 18 and older with a mental illness and dual diagnoses for a maximum of 90 days. Extensions of treatment for additional days are possible with a prior authorization based on medical necessity. An eligible recipient is age 18 or older, is eligible for Medical Assistance or contracted health insurance plan, and meets the Admission Criteria.

Services we provide

Services include supportive counseling, group, wellness and recovery for dual diagnoses, crisis assistance, nursing services, transition and discharge planning, living skills development including medication self-administration, healthy living, household management, and other supportive counseling. We work as partners with people and provide treatment that is individualized and person-centered.

Illness Management and Recovery is a program that helps people who experience psychiatric symptoms to develop personalized strategies for managing their mental illness and moving forward in their lives. The program is offered in both individual and group format. In the program, practitioners work collaboratively with people, offering a variety of information, strategies, and skills that people can use to further their own recovery. There is a strong emphasis on helping people set and pursue personal goals, empowering people to make choices, and instilling hope that change is possible.

Integrated Dual Disorders Treatment is mental health and substance abuse treatment integrated into a single treatment setting in which we adhere to an interdisciplinary approach. The team works collaboratively and assesses treatment readiness, uses motivational interviewing, employs harm reduction strategies with a non-confrontational approach, as well as stage-wise treatment interventions.

Family Education is treatment services for family members and recipients in need of information, assistance and support; including an educational curriculum addressing basic facts about the causes of mental illness and its treatment, including information about medication; practical advice or teaching how to manage and cope with difficult situations involving family members with a mental illness; family support groups and counseling; and community resources, including seeking crisis assistance and advocacy services. Family education can be provided on an individual or group basis.
