Our Residential Homes
Entrusting the care of a loved one to a mental health provider is an important decision, and the process of selecting the right provider can be overwhelming. Next Step Behavioral Houston offers personalized residential care that sets us apart from the rest. We understand there is “no place like home,” but we do our best to provide an atmosphere that is as comfortable as home. Next Step provides an intimate residential setting that limits the number of residents in one dwelling to provide residents with individualized attention and mitigate the triggering of adverse behaviors. Providing a smaller residential setting allows our interdisciplinary staff to provide more 1:1 care, which enable residents to receive the help they need, when they need it.
Our Wellness Program
We go beyond addressing only our residents’ mental health needs. At Next Step Behavioral Houston, we believe there is a correlation between mental health, nutrition, and physical activity. For this reason, we offer a wellness program to encourage our residents to take ownership of their health. Residents are offered daily menu options that consist of nutritional meals. We require residents to actively participate in the supervised preparation of these healthy meals to develop life skills essential to independent living. Also, Next Step encourages all residents to participate in scheduled exercise-related activities to combat the health risks associated with the sedentary lifestyle often experienced in other treatment programs. We promote healthy living, because we believe when residents exercise and eat nutrient-rich foods, they begin to feel better – physically and mentally.
