Northside Residence offers Intensive Residential Treatment Services (IRTS) in an 8-bed facility for individuals that identify as male. We create a community of men 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 identifying as male, 18 years and older with a mental illness. Many residents have co-occurring substance use and mental health diagnoses. This facility emphasizes the treatment of opioid use disorder. We admit individuals who need treatment to recover from the acute symptoms of mental illness. Stays at the program are limited to 90 days. We do not have the capacity to serve individuals with serious medical needs or those who present a high safety risk.

The goals we set

Our goals are to help residents create a plan that moves them in the direction of their hopes and dreams and to assist residents in finding and using the needed community supports that will help them continue to move forward after they leave Northside Residence. 

Services we provide

Services focus on mental illness and substance use treatment with particular responsiveness to an opioid use disorder. We will provide supportive counseling, group counseling, wellness and recovery for dual diagnoses. We’ll also provide crisis assistance, nursing services, transition and discharge planning, and living skills development including medication self-administration. 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.
