Community integration programs help those who are receiving psychiatric services maintain their social roles in the real world and remain connected to nourishing social networks and communities. Rather than separating people from vibrant community resources, such programs support clients in staying focused on their future – in believing in their own productive, fulfilling futures – while receiving help.

Providing an effective alternative to care that removes people from the community, Ellenhorn uses the most researched and evidence-based best-practice model for people who experience psychiatric events. The model we use is called Program for Assertive Community Treatment (PACT).  The success of the PACT model was a driving force in the development of community integration programs, and it remains the gold standard in this kind of care.

You can feel the power of hope at Ellenhorn. We bring in the best people, and we’re all part of a dedicated, committed group focused on a common goal. We embrace outstanding talent with diverse backgrounds and perspectives and foster a work environment where all employees feel empowered to do their best work. We take our jobs seriously, treat each other with respect and integrity, and learn and grow in our careers.

Ellenhorn offers competitive salaries.  Our benefit offerings include Medical, Dental and Vision coverage, Life Insurance, Disability (Short & Long-Term) Insurance, 401k, a generous Paid Time Off (PTO) policy, Flexible Spending Accounts, and more.
