Morningside Safe Haven residents are all Veterans, all have a mental illness and most have substance abuse problems. The Safe Haven is a “damp program” where residents who drink alcohol are not turned away. Using the best practice model of integrated substance and mental health treatment, residents receive treatment according to their personal stage of recovery. All services and treatments are based on the individual’s current ability and desire to accept psychiatric care (including medication), group and individual therapy and case management intervention. Services and housing are not denied based on a resident’s refusal to accept treatment.
