Residential Program: The Commons

This inpatient program has 12-beds, and provides structured days of recovery that include wellness-based gatherings and many other activities. Our model of care is grounded in the evidence-based practices of Integrated Treatment for Dual Disorders, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and self help.
Each resident participates in individual, family, and group counseling. Medication services, self-help, and vocational services are also at the core of The Commons program. Our caring professionals are on-site 24 hours per day, seven days per week to provide support, treatment intervention, encouragement, and monitoring. The average length of stay at The Commons is three to six months, but each stay varies based on the individual. The average length of stay is three to six months.
In addition to the residential services offered at The Commons, WestBridge has an extensive outpatient program for adult men and women in Manchester, NH. These services, referred to at WestBridge as Care Management, are designed to help individual with co-occurring disorders thrive in their community. Our multi-disciplinary team approach provides flexible, ongoing, and comprehensive support to individuals and their families.
Our Care Management services are based on the Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) model, which has been extensively researched. Studies have shown that ACT services are very effective for people who have frequent episodes of severe symptoms that are difficult to manage or symptoms that never go away. ACT teams help reduce the number of hospital stays and increase ones ability to remain active in their community.
