Residential Intensive Therapeutic Arrangements

Residential Intensive Therapeutic Arrangement (RITA) is a short-term, transitional therapeutic program for adults aged 18 or older with severe and persistent mental illness. They serve people who need structured settings. RITA homes generally have higher client-to-staff ratios.

After an evaluation and assessment process, residents are provided assistance with basic independent living skills in a group home setting.
