Residential Overview

Casa Pacifica is a Transitional Residential Full Service Partnership program designed to provide comprehensive, psycho-social rehabilitation and recovery for voluntary adults with chronic and persistent mental illness and dual diagnosis.  The program provides a schedule of daily classes to promote recovery and independent living. Services also include Case Management for the Public Conservator's Office, payeeship, individual therapy, medication support, psychiatry, vocational services, and peer support.  Clients are welcomed into a warm, homelike atmosphere where emphasis is placed on identifying individual motivating factors and goals toward recovery.  

Alumni Program Overview 

Graduates of the Casa Pacifica residential program will be encouraged to join our Alumni program.  This program is designed to continue the process of recovery in the community and further the transition to independent living.  The program includes transitional case management, where clients are visited in their residence and continually taught basic independent living skills.  Assistance is also provided with a housing plan and maintaining a residence.  We also provide alumni events to promote social connections.
