Touchstone Intensive Support Service

Touchstone is a structured therapeutic environment which meets 3 times a week for 3 hours each day and typically runs for 6 to 8 months. It is a good treatment option for individuals needing more support than once-a-week counseling or those who have recently completed a hospitalization.
