The supportive living space in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, can house 12 people who are currently receiving mental health or addiction treatment in an intensive outpatient or partial hospitalization program. It will allow people to focus on their recovery journey and practice self-care such as hygiene, life, or vocational skills to help them transition into the next stage of their recovery.
Is supportive living at Rogers only for addiction treatment?
Traditional supportive living settings are primarily focused on those who are receiving treatment for addiction, but Rogers’ offering will be more inclusive. The supportive living house at Rogers is a drug- and alcohol-free environment that is meant to be a safe place for those receiving care for OCD, anxiety, depression, addiction, and other mental health disorders.
What does a day look like in supportive living?
Days spent in the supportive living space are similar to being at home, but with additional structure and built-in supports for recovery. A typical week has scheduled meals, outings, personal time, supportive meetings, and group activities. Time is also set aside for residents to leave to attend their treatment program.
In their free time, supportive living residents can use gym equipment to exercise, practice their skills, complete some minor housekeeping or laundry, relax, or catch up with family and friends.
Who is the supportive living space meant for?
Supportive living is open to anyone over the age of 18 that is also enrolled in an outpatient treatment program at Rogers or a PHP or IOP at another mental health treatment program. Its goal is to provide a safe place for people to stay while in recovery. It can also be used for someone who lives outside of the area who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend treatment.
If you or a loved one is seeking care for mental health or addiction, you can call 800-767-4411 for a free, confidential screening or request one online.
