Vail Place, Inc. Overview
Programs: Recovery is an ongoing process of growth, discovery, and change. This means that there must be multiple entry points for every individual who walks through our door. There must be the space to stumble, to change direction, and to gain new skills as the need for them emerges. Vail Place organizes our programs within clubhouse spaces that are welcoming and warm in order to meet these needs.
Vail Place is a Community Support Program (CSP) and also offers Rule 79 Case Management Services. What this means is that Vail Place supports each person coming through our doors to strengthen their day-to-day coping and wellness strategies. These are the tools needed to be a member of a family, a community, to maintain a job and to build a future. They are the key to recovery.
Vail Place serves people 18 years of age and older, with a diagnosis of serious and persistent mental illness (SPMI) – the most common diagnoses are schizophrenia, depression, and bipolar disorder. Members are referred directly to Vail Place by many sources, including medical facilities, private practitioners, social workers, family members, etc. There is no charge to members for participation in our CSP program, which is important since all of our members are seriously economically disadvantaged (below 30% of Area Median Income).
Our two facilities are both wheelchair accessible and conveniently located with easy access to public transportation.Vail Place served 1,887 people in 2008.
