What is The Living Room?
The Living Room program provides a 24-hour crisis alternative to emergency department visits and hospitalization. Located in Framingham, The Living Room is the only program of its kind accessible to people in the MetroWest and greater Boston areas. No referral is necessary to visit our comfortable, home-like location, staffed entirely by trained, certified peer specialists. The Living Room creates an experience that is entirely voluntary, and focused on respect, mutuality, and trust. Peer specialists don’t administer medications or take clinical notes. Instead they use their expertise and personal stories to inspire hope and demonstrate that recovery is possible for everyone.
