LVF is pleased to introduce you to The Lodge at Lenape Valley Foundation!

The Lodge is Bucks County’s first and only crisis residential program. The Lodge is now open and serves all Bucks County residents. The Lodge addresses a serious gap in the array of crisis services currently available to residents of Bucks County. Surrounding counties already have this important option in place!

LVF has constructed a new 16,000 square foot building in Bristol Borough. The new building, built just yards away from the current Bristol office, accommodates The Lodge as well as LVF outpatient services. The new site was selected because it is at the nexus of major highways easily accessible throughout Bucks County. In combination with LVF Crisis Services it provides a hub of comprehensive services for Bucks County residents with serious, acute behavioral health issues, which will respond to the consumer’s need.

At present, LVF crisis workers seeing persons in the midst of a behavioral health crisis who are at imminent risk, especially of suicide, have essentially two options. Either they must admit the person in crisis to an inpatient psychiatric hospital unit or they must return that person immediately to the community. The Lodge provides a much needed third option. The Lodge is residential care in an open, home-like setting with 24/7 on-site staffing by health professionals. The Lodge provides appropriate crisis intervention services with sufficient monitoring to assure the safety of the person admitted. The Lodge focuses on maintaining contact with family and other community resources during a person’s stay, which is expected to be from 3 – 10 days. Additionally, the residential care includes interface with other outpatient type services that will be needed upon discharge.
