Extended Care Treatment
Lancaster House is a transitional living environment with close physical proximity to our main facility. Veterans who complete a 90-day primary care treatment program will have the opportunity to reside at Lancaster House for an additional 90 days of extended care treatment.
During their time at Lancaster houses, residents will be closely monitored and supported by other Veterans employed by Together We Can in the capacity of peer support. The emphasis at Lancaster House is helping veterans transition smoothly into civilian life through practical application of recovery strategies.
Process groups highlighting topics such as relapse prevention, career development, re-training, stress management and continued aftercare planning take place daily at Lancaster House. Residents will be given the supervision and structure they need to ensure long-term success upon leaving TWC’s primary care treatment program.
