Long-Term Residential Treatment
Located on the grounds of Friends Hospital, the Greystone Program is a long-term community residence designed to meet the special needs of individuals with a severe and persistent behavioral health disorder. Taking place in two separate buildings, Greystone House and Hillside House, the program is dedicated to helping residents move toward recovery, greater independence and an enhanced quality of life. Both houses are staffed 24 hours a day.
The Greystone Program emphasizes development of daily living and social skills, purposeful activity and recovery to enable residents to realize their dignity, worth and highest individual potential. Many residents have chosen to make the Greystone Program their permanent home while others successfully transition to a less structured environment. All residents receive medications and individual and group therapies, as well as educational and vocational counseling.
Our staff supports residents as they make important decisions such as medication and treatment goals to help them develop to their fullest potential and achieve personal milestones. The multidisciplinary treatment team includes registered nurses, social workers and resident advisors. The program is overseen by the medical director, board-certified psychiatrist, program director, advanced practice nurse and clinical specialist. Families are encouraged to participate as important members of the treatment team.
Inquiries and referrals to the Greystone Program may be made at 215-831-3918. To be considered for the program, individuals must be at least 21 years old, have a long standing psychiatric disorder, be free of any major physical disabilities, have no active substance abuse issues and be able to refrain from destructive behaviors to self, others and property.
