Afton Place Opens in Maplewood
One of the metro area’s newer programs is Afton Place in Maplewood, a part of Regions Behavioral/Mental Health. Opened this spring, it provides Intensive Residential Treatment Services (IRTS) for patients needing up to 90 days of care as they transition back to the community. This housing and 24/7 services program serves up to 16 people.
Afton Place offers sensory integration as part of its programming. It has a sensory room designed for patients to practice behavioral exercises and cognitive relaxation tools. These are tools that patients can learn to practice after they leave the program. Medical services for those with co-occurring diseases such as diabetes, COPD, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and drug and alcohol addiction are also offered. The program is located at 2715 Upper Afton Road E., in Maplewood. For information, call 651-254-0500.
