Program Type: Adult Residential Facility

To Make Referrals: Our program receives referrals from all community and county providers in Ventura. The majority of referrals go through Ventura County's COC (continuum of care) meeting, at which local providers discuss the best plan of action for each individual.

We do require that members are enrolled with the VCBH team prior to admission, therefore, all members accepted to our program must be open to the county prior to, or upon, admission. We are a voluntary program (not locked), meaning that potential members agree with our program policies and treatment structure before making the decision to come to the program. The members must have had no recent history of significant violence and should be able to administer medication independently (with staff monitoring). We also require that our members are ambulatory—Stonehenge is ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) approved and medical assisted devices are permitted.

About the Program: At Stonehenge, we serve individuals with a serious and persistent mental illness who have been faced with multiple acute psychiatric hospital admissions and have difficulty maintaining a residence in the community. We celebrate and support our members at Stonehenge, having regular family meetings (campus-wide and individually at each program) and campus-wide barbecues.

We recognize cultural holidays, such as Martin Luther King Day, Cinco de Mayo, etc. In addition, we have regularly scheduled groups and staff schedule outings on a weekly basis (beach walks, museums, personal needs, etc).Monthly, our members nominate and vote for a citizen of the month; a peer who stood out to them for whatever reason. This person is recognized during group, gets their name engraved on a plaque that hangs in the casa dining room, and is taken to lunch out.
