Long Term Structured Residence

Long Term Structured Residence (LTSR)


What is LTSR?

The Stairways Behavioral Health long-term structured residence (LTSR) setting provides a highly recovery-focused mental health treatment program. People in this program are transitioning from an inpatient mental health stay back into the community. Treatment focuses on developing social skills and increasing mental and physical health stability.

The LTSR is a part of Erie County’s continuum of care and bridges the gap between hospital and home with an extended stay lasting an average of six months. The treatment-rich environment is guided by a physician, nurses and a team of mental health professionals, mental health workers and peer specialists.

People in the program and their families are encouraged to take an active role in their recovery process, treatment planning and discharge. As individuals prepare to transition from the LTSR, staff are available to assist with referrals to supportive services in the community, including such programs as Blended Case Management, Psychiatric Rehabilitation, Mobile Medication Management, Certified Peer Support, Assertive Community Treatment and other resources as needed.
