BACKGROUND:

Montgomery County Mental Health Treatment Facility (MCMHTF) was developed through a pioneering public-private partnership between Montgomery County, the Texas Department of State Health Services (now the Health and Human Services Commission), and Recovery Solutions. Montgomery County developed and financed the project, and we were awarded a management contract through a competitive solicitation process. MCMHTF opened in March 2011, with an anticipated expansion to 200 beds by 2026.

Philosophy:

MCMHTF embraces a recovery-oriented, trauma-informed care model focused on competency restoration for all patients. The recovery model promotes patient choice and tailors treatment to meet individual needs based on the assessments of a multi-disciplinary treatment team. Support of family, friends, or other individuals selected by the patient are encouraged to participate.

Services:

MCMHTF provides evidence-based, trauma-informed behavioral health and competency restoration to individuals found incompetent to stand trial. Services include individualized assessment, multidisciplinary treatment planning, psychiatric services, competency restoration, integrated treatment for co-occurring psychiatric and substance disorders, court reports, court testimony, psychosocial rehabilitation, social service support, discharge planning, medical care, pharmacy, food/nutrition, facility maintenance, transportation, and safety/security.

MCMHTF has developed processes for ensuring respect for patient rights, prevention of abuse, neglect and exploitation, the virtual elimination of seclusion and significant reduction in restraint, and effective linkages to the community, legal system, other state psychiatric facilities, and other community agencies in multiple counties across the state of Texas.
