What is IRSH?

Intensive Residential Services serves individuals over the age of 18, who have a diagnosis of severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI) or co-occurring conditions, in conjunction with functional impairments. Services are provided 24/7/365 and have multiple staff per shift. This service is intended to be short-term and intensive in nature, with the goal of working diligently on the individuals’ goals in order to successfully partner with them to transition to a lower level of care.

Our Intensive Residential Services Home is located in Burlington, IA. It is a co-ed, 5-bedroom home located within the community. Individuals that access this service, must have secure funding through their Medicaid Insurance or Mental Health & Disability Region in the form of Intellectual Disability (ID) Waiver or Habilitation Services.  Referrals may be sent in by the individuals Case Manager, Care Coordinator, or Regional Coordinator.
