Residents spend a majority of their afternoons, evenings, and weekends on these units, so we strive to make them welcoming and comfortable while also keeping safety in mind. The units resemble a college dorm environment, with full kitchens, common areas, bathrooms, and bedrooms. Most residents share rooms, furnished with beds and shelves for clothes and personal items. Residents may decorate their rooms with pictures from home, provided they follow our guidelines, or they can create artwork while in our care.  

Each afternoon, clinicians lead DBT groups that vary depending on the needs of the residents. These groups allow residents opportunities to engage with each other to work on social skills, problem solving, and other positive behavior changes. On weekends, the units organize community outings whether it be a simple walk on our beautiful campus, or a group trip to nearby Baltimore.
