The Rollins campus 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

The Rollins Campus is a normalizing environment that feels very much like a college campus ... not a hospital. While there are rules and expectations, clients are part of a welcoming community of peers and expert clinicians. This community helps adults who are struggling with a mental illness realize that they are not alone.

They meet other individuals 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

Our residential staff helps our clients take steps toward normalizing their daily routine and improving daily living skills. To restore healthy sleep patterns, we set expectations for lights out and wake up times.  We also set expectations for personal hygiene and cleanliness of personal and community areas. During treatment hours on Monday through Friday 10AM-5PM, the residential wing is not accessible to clients, ensuring that clients are engaged in treatment and socializing with the community.

Morning, evening and weekend meals are prepared onsite by our dining services staff and served in a community dining room. A licensed nurse is onsite 24/7, and our staff administers medications. Clients are encouraged to work toward independently managing their medications.

Structured Daily Schedules

Each client receives an individualized recovery community and weekly schedule. 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 and recreational therapy teams organize fun activities on campus - from art activities to "screen on the green" outdoor movies - to encourage social engagement with peers and provide structured schedules on evenings and weekends. Off-campus visits to parks, museums, and other attractions take place in the community when possible.

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. For older adults, vocational services helps clients find strategies to balance career and personal commitments, transition to retirement, or change careers to support their mental health.

Expected Length of Stay

Clients typically stay in residential treatment 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.
