CR operates several mental health residential programs in Arlington that are open only to County residents. The programs span a continuum of housing options from the least restrictive transitional residential settings to assisted living facilities for individuals with mental health diagnoses and who require more intensive assistance. Our philosophy is to provide a normalizing, home-like environment where we assist individuals in learning skills that promote community tenure and integration, better health management and opportunities to fully engage in their own recovery process. Varying levels of care are provided depending upon the intensity of need and include supportive services, coordination of medical needs, therapeutic services and assistance with daily structure. Referrals to any of CR’s Arlington mental health residential programs must be made through an Arlington County Behavioral Healthcare Case Manager.




I believe the best care comes from love and empathy rather than duty and sympathy.
