Class of Housing/Services: Short Term Acute Residential Treatment (START)
Short Term Acute Residential Treatment (START)
The START programs (Short Term Acute Residential Treatment, also referred to as crisis residential programs) are located throughout San Diego County and offer an alternative to hospitalization for adults who are suffering an acute psychiatric crisis that is not manageable on an outpatient basis.
Ranging in size from eleven to sixteen beds, the programs are designed to discover the unique needs and preferences of each individual, engage and build on the personal strengths of each, and tailor an individualized service plan to address those needs. Built around a bio-psychosocial approach, the programs ensure that each resident is connected to a variety of social service supports within their own community to aid the transition into successful living beyond the START programs. The average length of stay is 9 days.
A typical day in the program begins with breakfast, followed by a Community Meeting in which staff and clients gather to discuss the day's schedule and any community issues. Clients meet individually with counselors to discuss mental health, substance abuse, and transition issues. They also participate in clinical and psycho-educational groups twice daily. Clinical interventions include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI). Clients have an opportunity to meet with the psychiatrists on staff and receive medication education and services from the nursing staff.
