Telecare Recovery Partnership is a resource for individuals who are experiencing an acute mental health crisis and would otherwise meet hospital admission criteria and who pose an actual or imminent danger to self, others, or property due to a mental illness. The goal of the program is to assist people in stabilizing their acute symptoms — and support their recovery, so that they may transition back to the community or less-restrictive settings. The program is a locked, 16-bed facility that serves individuals in Pierce County, age 18 and over. The length of stay is between 5 to 17 days.

Telecare Recovery Partnership is a recovery-focused inpatient program, using Telecare’s Recovery-Centered Clinical System (RCCS) as the foundation of approach. This system incorporates evidence-based practices and innovative design components, and emphasizes choice-making skills, harm-reduction techniques and strives to awaken the hopes and dreams of the individual. The RCCS emphasizes “no-force first” practices. Staff work with individuals within their cultural dynamic in building independence and self-responsibility in order to foster their recovery and successfully transition them back to lower levels of care.
