Residential Programs

Persons with serious mental illness or substance use disorders may not be able to live independently, at least not for awhile. LifeStream operates residential programs located throughout Lake and Sumter Counties that provide a safe, therapeutic environment for all age groups. Residents have access to rehabilitative and recovery services as well as having a primary clinician or case manager assigned. Residential programs focus on bio-psychosocial functioning, including group treatment, daily living skills and activities. Our goal is to give individuals an opportunity to re-integrate back into the community.
