Community Living Services
Community Based Flexible Supports (CBFS)
Our Community Based Flexible Supports (CBFS) provides individuals living with a mental illness an array of service options to help them develop skills and gain resources for a successful life in their community. Services are provided by a comprehensive team and include psychiatric rehabilitation, clinical treatment, education and employment support, wellness and peer recovery services, along with care coordination and housing services. We collaborate with individuals using the service, and their support system, to create treatment plans that promote resiliency and recovery. Our services are designed to be flexible according to each person’s unique needs and goals.
Program of Assertive Community Treatment (PACT)
The Riverside Program of Assertive Community Treatment (PACT) provides an array of clinical, rehabilitative, and recovery-oriented services for adults with challenging and persistent problems related to psychiatric illnesses, who have not responded to more traditional services. Our community-based team of professionals and peer mentors support the PACT member’s personal recovery journey. The services are provided as needed in a community setting and are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. PACT provides mental health and substance use interventions as well as linking members to community-based, self-help resources and providing direct rehabilitation, vocational, and housing related services.
Individuals must be referred by the Department of Mental Health to be eligible for these programs.
We are pleased to share comments from the people we serve:
"I can't say enough wonderful things about the Newton Outreach Program. Many other therapists were unable to break through my son’s strong, protective shell. Quickly and quietly, Marianne gained his trust and she became part of all of our lives. You helped us gain wisdom and taught us how to appreciate the wonderful aspects of life while accepting the challenges."
