Transitional Residential Support for Adults
Located approximately 15 minutes west of McLean’s Belmont campus, the Lincoln Residence provides a supportive and therapeutic setting for adults 18 and over who would benefit from additional support while transitioning to independent living.
Whether receiving care at our Belmont campus or at outpatient treatment programs elsewhere in the community, the Lincoln Residence offers the expertise of our program clinicians, who specialize in treating a wide range of mental health conditions, including co-occurring psychiatric disorders.
The Lincoln Residence accommodates up to eight people. Amenities include private bedrooms with private baths; large, comfortable and well-appointed common areas; and laundry facilities. Wireless internet is available throughout the residence.
Each nutritious meal is catered, including a sit-down dinner each night. The kitchen is stocked with snacks and beverages. There is a well-equipped exercise room and maintained tennis court and ball machine onsite. Patients also receive membership to an area fitness facility with a swimming pool. Personal trainers are available at an additional cost.
Parking is available at the residence with approval by the program director. Transportation is provided between Lincoln and the McLean Belmont campus, and to and from other community resources.
Our program is designed to provide patients with a structured and supervised supportive setting. Patients leave the house during the day to participate in intensive outpatient treatment.
A core function of our program is intensive care management. Through close daily communication with the patient’s outpatient team, the clinical staff at the Lincoln Residence supports treatment and the acquisition of skills needed to achieve the highest levels of functioning.
We place a special emphasis on creating healthy lifestyles and positive decision-making. In support of this, we offer an assortment of groups and activities during the week that draw on a variety of evidence-based interventions that have proven effective in controlling symptoms and increasing levels of health.
When intensive outpatient treatment is no longer required and activities such as work, school, or volunteer work take on greater importance, the Lincoln Residence will continue to offer the same intensive care management, ensuring that the transition from treatment to a more normal life is successful.
We offer an array of services at Lincoln to augment treatment and to support recovery, including:
- Psychiatric assessment and medication evaluation and management
- Case management services, including ongoing consultation with the referring clinician, and aftercare planning
- Group-based supportive therapies, patient education, spirituality, and life skills training
- Family education and support
- Vocational assistance
- Nutritional assessment and education
- Toxicology testing, when indicated
Program participants work toward acquiring new coping skills to enhance the gains made in their treatment. They manage their own medications, though assistance is provided for those who require it. Our goal is to help participants return to living as independently as possible and achieve a more balanced, fulfilling life.
A full spectrum of McLean ancillary health services are available at an additional charge, including neurological and neuropsychological testing and consultation, specialty imaging, and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and transcranial magnetic therapy (TMS).
Additionally, patients may receive specialized treatment for many types of mental health disorders from McLean Hospital’s wide variety of psychiatric specialists. Patients also have access to private ancillary health and personal services in the greater Boston area.
