Community Transitional Recovery Program (CTRP)

The goal of the Community Transitional Recovery Program (CTRP) is to provide short-term assessment and recovery supports to individuals who have high and complex needs exiting institutions or other acute crisis settings to further prepare them for community-based living and to plan for community inclusion. CTRP is intended to be a building block in moving toward independence. Like other community living options, CTRP is designed to allow participants the choice to live in the least restrictive community setting.

Participants live in one of six two-bedroom townhomes in Durham, N.C., and they remain in the program for 60-90 days prior to transitioning to their next step.

CTRP employs an interdisciplinary team consisting of a Program Manager, Case Managers, Peer Support Specialists, and a part-time nurse. The program is staffed from 7 a.m.-9 p.m., seven days a week. From 9 p.m.-7 a.m., each townhome utilizes remote monitoring technology with sensors (no cameras) and the ability to speak to a live person with the push of a button. Please visit our Remote Monitoring Program page for an example video of these services, linked here.

During a client’s 60-90 day stay, the intentional and intensive weekly schedule includes the following: 12 hours of individual case management, 8 hours of individual peer support, and a minimum of 4 group sessions per week. Programing is person-centered and will focus on the social determinants of health and community-inclusion planning.

Discharge planning and housing assessments begin at admission. Assessments may include the Adult MH DLA-20 and the Temple University Participation Measure. RHD works with community stakeholders to link participants with community resources for transportation, psychiatric and primary care services, and other needs to ensure continuity of care after transitioning out of the program.
