- Scavetta House, which serves as a men’s residential facility.
- River House, a 1913 English Tudor style home that has served as a patient residence since the 1980’s
and now houses the Dialectical Behavior Therapy residential program, which helps so-called borderline patients regulate feelings by charting emotions.
- Klingenstein House, a 1920s guesthouse that now houses the Adolescent Transitional Living Program
