PHYSICAL & MENTAL
LifeHouse Group’s approach to health care for its residents includes an initial risk and needs assessment, as well as behavioral therapy and individual case management for each resident to ensure he receives appropriate levels of physical and mental health care during his stay at our facility. Residents with criminogenic needs (needs statistically shown to be associated with re-offending including substance abuse, lack of self-control, and anti-social behaviors) will be provided with treatments that focus on behavioral, therapeutic, and support group programs. All LifeHouse Group residents will participate in a mandatory non-violence workshop run by Habilitative Systems.
LifeHouse Group has partnered with Roseland Community Hospital, Habilitative Systems and Beloved Community Family Health Center to provide in-house healthcare services to residents. Scroll over each provider for more detail.
In addition, LifeHouse Behavioral Health, a subsidiary of LifeHouse Group, will soon be accredited for substance abuse and mental health training, making our facility one of only two halfway houses in Illinois licenses to provide substance abuse and mental health treatments.
Roseland Community Hospital provides initial and continued health care for residents throughout their stay. These services include weekly onsite doctor visits, blood draws, drug testing and pharmaceutical care.
Habilitative Systems offers risk and needs assessments for each LifeHouse Group resident. Depending on this evaluation, residents may undergo cognitive and behavioral therapy, drug abuse treatment and counseling to bridge the psychological transition from incarceration to contributing community member. Residents can continue their work with Habilitative Systems after leaving LifeHouse Group.
Incoming residents will be sent to our partner, Beloved Community Family Wellness Center (“Beloved”), for a complete physical and mental health evaluation. Beloved provides services in compliance with Rule 132 and has been our local partner in physical and behavioral health since June 2020. Beloved completes an intake assessment with a certified professional for each resident we receive. After initial assessment, Beloved refers the individual to a psychiatrist, who will meet with the patient to evaluate the initial assessment, review existing medications, and consider altering dosage or type of medication, as necessary. Beloved also provides physical care, ongoing mental and behavioral health care, dental care, drug testing, and medical transportation for our residents.
