I'm told that in the U.S. there are halfway houses for people with long term psychiatric illnesses like schizophrenia. They're used while meds are getting stabilised and for life skills education - a last step before social reintegration after being in crisis care or a longer term psych facility.
Thing is, I'm looking for a place that would cater to BOTH reintegrating chronic patients and people with less severe and/or acute conditions. So people with mood disorders, probably a few self-admits etc. Specifically, a guy with situational depression judged to be a possible danger to himself, checking in voluntarily as an alternative to involuntary commital in a more secure short-term care facility.
Most of the halfway places I've seen cater to drug addicts and sex offenders, which I'm not looking for at all.
So, would a place like this exist? I mean, even if I had to make a place up, would it be allowed according to Texas law?
