Chestnut Health Systems™ provides several types of housing for persons living with substance use disorder and/or serious mental illness. Our goal is to provide safe, suitable, affordable housing and to help individuals gain skills so that they can stay in permanent housing and achieve greater self-determination. 

Residents of housing owned or managed by Chestnut benefit from skills training, medication management, counseling, substance use disorder treatment, social programming, recreation, case management, and community support. We link residents to community resources and transportation, advocate for clients’ rights, help with resumes and job searches, and provide financial assistance for buying furniture and supplies. 

Housing types include crisis residential, group homes, supervised, and supported.
