The Alliance Welcomes New Members: Lucid Living, LLC and University of Washington Master of Health Administration Program

This month, we’re excited to welcome Lucid Living and University of Washington Master of Health Administration as the newest members of the Alliance.

Lucid Living, LLC

Before individuals with psychiatric complications discharge from restrictive settings they are typically set up with living arrangements, outpatient office appointments and other things like that. There is, however, a gap in care that exists between restrictive settings and outpatient care. We know from research that schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders are the #1 cause of Medicaid and Medicare 7-day readmissions. The period directly following hospitalization carries increased risk of homelessness & increased drug use. Lucid Living stands in the gap with whole-person transitional care that addresses clinical components to circumvent the likelihood of those outcomes–while making sure service-users get from restrictive settings to home with complete care and continuity.
