Rollins Campus for Young Adults
We provide our most intensive level of psychiatric care for young adults ages 18 to 24 at the Rollins Campus. The campus, designed to provide the best residential mental health treatment for college-age adults, includes 32 units, each with a private bedroom and bathroom.
COVID-19 PROGRAM UPDATE
Residential Admissions to a Precautionary Facility
During this pandemic, instead of organizing our adult residential campuses by client age, we are designating South Campus as a precautionary facility for new admissions and Rollins Campus as our main campus for residential treatment.
Before admitting, all adult residential clients must receive a negative COVID-19 PCR test and self quarantine for 14 days. Clients may receive the PCR test in their community and then self isolate at home. Adult residential clients admit directly to South Campus and receive a second COVID-19 PCR test and a history & physical exam on the day of admission. They remain sequestered at South Campus for at least six days and until we receive results of the PCR test. They participate in treatment remotely through zoom and do not have direct contact with any clients living at Rollins Campus. Once we receive PCR test results from the lab, and the test is negative, the client may move to Rollins Campus.
Clients at Rollins Campus meet in person for groups and individual primary counselor sessions while practicing physical distancing. Individual psychiatry sessions take place through zoom. All residential clients at South Campus and Rollins Campus reside in private rooms with private bathrooms.

Specially designed for college-age adults, the Rollins campus also includes unique spaces to promote social interaction and engagement in treatment. Welcoming common areas include a family room, client lounge, and outdoor dining terrace. Each residential floor includes a media and game room, and a unique courtyard provides opportunities to participate in outdoor games, yoga, or simply read and enjoy nature.
A Healing Community
They meet other individuals their age who have similar experiences and who are working through similar questions: What does this diagnosis mean for my future? How do I relate to my friends and family? How do I ask for help when I need it? How do I make healthy choices so that I can be independent and live the life I want?
Structured, evidence-based therapeutic activities throughout the day help clients develop the skills they need to answer these questions. The relationships that clients develop with their peers and counselors help provide the inspiration and motivation to fully participate in treatment and start to use the skills to make progress toward recovery.
Steps Toward Independent Living
Structured Daily Schedules
Each client receives an individualized recovery community and weekly schedule. Young adult residential clients participate in individual and group therapy sessions Monday through Friday from 10AM to 4PM.
Some groups take place at the Rollins Campus. Some groups take place at the adjacent Charles B. West Campus.
In additional to individual and group talk therapy sessions, daily schedules include structured fitness and nutrition activities as well as hands-on expressive activities like art, music and horticultural therapy.
Residential clients participate in our Life Enrichment Adult Program (LEAP) on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and on weekends. Our residential staff also organizes activities on-site and in the community. Weekend activities include trips to museums, parks, shopping, and dining opportunities.

School and Work
The Skyland Trail residential treatment program is a full-time program; residential clients will need to suspend their commitments to a job or school.
The vocational services program offers many opportunities to help young adult clients prepare to return to school, enter the workforce, or find meaningful volunteer opportunities in their communities.
Expected Length of Stay
Clients typically stay in residential treatment at Rollins for about eight weeks. Most clients then step down to our day treatment program where they continue to work toward independence for several weeks before transitioning to our intensive outpatient program for another two to six weeks.
The total average length of treatment for clients admitting to residential treatment is about 12 to 16 weeks (3-4 months). (Please note that clients in our DBT program enroll in a defined 90-day treatment program.)
Remember that everyone moves through treatment at his or her own pace. Skyland Trail is not a one-size-fits-all program. The length of stay in any level of care is tailored to the needs of each individual client.
Our unique program continuum also allows us to increase the level of care for a client who is struggling or needs extra support. Our multidisciplinary treatment team meets each week to discuss each client individually. The team considers each client's progress toward goals and remaining challenges and makes careful decisions about the level of support each client needs to achieve continued improvement.
Family and Friend Involvement
All Skyland Trail residences are unlocked, voluntary facilities. Visits from family and friends are permitted. Passes to leave the residence are determined by a level system and must be requested from and approved by the primary counselor. Clients on level one may receive passes to leave the residence with family members for up to four hours. Clients on level two may receive overnight passes.
