Levels of Care: Residential & Day Treatment


There are multiple levels of care available at both of our Pasadena Villa locations; The Villa Orlando and Smoky Mountain Lodge. Residents may begin at any level of care, however we highly recommend each new resident beginning with Intensive Residential Treatment and then moving through the levels of care as progress is made.

As well, all of our programs are voluntary and we never utilize restraints or locked-in client facilities.

On-Site Residential Treatment Options:

Intensive Residential Treatment – Our most intensive level of care, Intensive Residential Treatment offers a high staff to resident ratio, 24-hour staffing, and a variety of individualized therapies, education and support.

Community-Based Residential Treatment – Less intensive community residential care is provided in single family group homes. While these homes require less supervision by our staff, additional on-call support staff are available 24/7.

Our gender-specific Community Residential Homes offer a safe, comfortable home-like environment. Our staff also provides a host of treatment and support services customized to guide each resident to reach his or her highest level of independence possible.

Off-Site Treatment Options:

Day Treatment – Many people have progressed enough to not need residential treatment, but still require support. Day Treatment is more intensive than outpatient care but is less intensive than our community-based residential treatment. People can participate in individualized therapeutic activities seven days a week, while living within their own, off-site residence. Our staff will assist in finding and securing appropriate housing.

Supported Housing – Similar to Day Treatment, Our Supported Housing services allow people to participate in individualized therapeutic activities several times a week, while living within their own, off-site residence. Our staff assists in finding and securing appropriate housing, as well.

Pasadena Villa Psychiatric Residential Treatment Centers not only meet specific local, state, and federal regulations, but we work hard to exceed them.  We also voluntarily choose to meet or exceed the higher standards required for the prestigious Joint Commission Accreditation, with which all Pasadena Villa programs and locations are accredited.

Length Of Stay:

An individual’s stay at Pasadena Villa cannot be exactly predicted as it is based on how well the resident responds to medications and therapy.

With that said, we do not run a “90 day” or “year-long” or any other predetermined length of stay for an individualized program. The length of stay is based on progress, as defined by the resident’s treatment team, consisting of: the resident, the resident’s family, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, nurses and the other supporting professionals at Pasadena Villa.

For most people, their stay averages at about 3 or 4 months of intensive residential care. This is typically followed with about 6 to 9 months of supervised living in a “step down” setting at one of our several levels of community housing.

Again, all of this is based on the individual progress and needs of the resident. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call.
