Adele Gilbert Residential Treatment Program

A home-like environment for recovery.

Ms. Adele Gilbert

The Adele Gilbert Residential Treatment Program is a 16-bed facility in Pinellas County for adults aged 18 + who have chronic mental illness and may also have co-occurring substance abuse issues.

The estimated length of stay is 6-8 months and consumers may leave the facility unsupervised after the first 45 days, pending certain criteria levels have been met.

The program accepts forensic referrals including individuals who are “incompetent to proceed” and “not guilty by reason of insanity.”

Success Stories:
  • With the help of the Adele Gilbert Residential Treatment Program staff, one consumer that had lost touch with his family for over 15 years, was able to locate and eventually be reunited with his family.
  • One consumer completed and graduated from the program and is now employed by Gulf Coast Jewish Family & Community Services .
