Gandara Esperanza Woman’s TSS
The Transitional Support Services (TSS) model is short-term residential program for women who need further stabilization and intensive case management after detox or for women that may be coming from a public shelter that were recently in detox or a higher level care. All admissions will be assessed for medical and psychiatric stability and determined to participate in this programming model and level of care.
The primary role of the TSS is to provide 24 hour, structure, supportive and a safe environment for up to 30 women. During their stay the residents will be engaged in intensive case management, structured psycho-education and a recovery oriented milieu management.
Gandara Esparanza Women’s TSS expects to achieve the following:
- Assist the women to remain substance free
- Provide priority access to pregnant women
- Provide after care planning and placement for those that need it, and those that wish to remain in a long-term treatment.
Residents will be provided transportation 7 days a week, community health facilities and community based self-help programs in addition to required court appearances and to interviews with Next Step treatment facilities. Nursing staff will be available on the unit for at least 4 hours, 7 days a week.
