About House of Transition

House of Transition is an 18-month maximum-stay social rehabilitation program that assists clients in their transition to the community. The primary focus of our program is on community integration and skill development.

House of Transition provides a daily, structured therapeutic program and encourages community involvement. We partner with Ventura County Behavioral Health to provide case management, therapy, and psychiatric services with the goal that our members can transition to a less restrictive, more independent level of care.

Just the Basics

Beds: 15
Population Served: Adults ages 18-59 with serious mental illness
Funded by: Ventura County Behavioral Health

Recovery Model

This program follows Telecare’s Recovery-Centered Clinical System (RCCS), an innovative recovery framework that incorporates the latest research and evidence-based practices. RCCS emphasizes doing no harm and supporting and enlivening recovery. The recovery model incorporates such approaches as motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), harm reduction, and other consumer-centered therapeutic interventions.

Services and Supports

Services include, but are not limited to:

  • Individual and group counseling
  • Development of skills
  • Advocacy
  • Assistance in securing safe, decent, affordable and accessible housing

Office Hours

  • 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

Referral Process

All referrals are made through the Ventura County Behavioral Health STAR (Screening Triage Assessment and Referral) Program.

Admission Criteria

We are licensed to provide services to male and female adults (18-59 years) with a primary diagnosis of a serious mental illness. Adults with substance abuse diagnoses are also admitted, provided their primary diagnosis is a serious mental illness.

Contacting A Family Member

Members can be reached by mail or telephone (contact information above), as well as through visits both on and off campus.

What Makes Us Different

Residential treatment programs are more structured and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Clients both reside and receive services in this environment. Transitional Community Living programs have a significant portion of services provided in the community by other treatment providers.

House of Transition promotes cultural diversity and encourages family involvement. Our members participate in member forum meetings where special holiday events are planned, safety concerns are addressed, and where they can support each other. We have weekly family dinners and monthly campus-wide family meetings. We also participate in several NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) events throughout the year.
