Helping America's Most Vulnerable

Biddeford and Bangor Maine: Intensive Residential Treatment

One-on-One Supportive Staffing in Apartment Living

Volunteers of America Northern New England's Intensive Residential Treatment & Housing is a program for 9 individuals diagnosed with severe and persistent mental illness. This program has 9 apartments in Biddeford at Volunteers of America's Friendship Hill House, and 8 apartments in Bangor. All residents receive staffing 24 hours a day.

Our staff supports clients to develop skills to transition to a more independent community setting.

Intensive Residential Treatment offers the skills and support needed by men and women who experience mental illness so that they may live as independently as possible in the community. The focus is to structure life in a way that best promotes growth and wellness in a home environment. Clients are encouraged to cope with the challenges of everyday living with increased independence by developing daily living skills, obtaining education, and learning how to manage symptoms with an individual treatment plan.

We are only able to accept referrals from DHHS Region 1 Mental Health Office.
