Greg arrived at Avalon with a diagnosis of PTSD and depression. These challenges manifested in aggression, self-injury, and a history of multiple psychiatric hospitalizations.
In the year that he participated in Avalon (our residential treatment program in Oakland), Greg graduated, and with supported living services in place through the Regional Center, he was able to go on to live in our agency housing program for non-minor dependents, Rising Oaks.
