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 8 to 12 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.

Touchstone will help individuals build on foundational mental health skills that will help them to successfully identify and manage their stressors and triggers.
