Staffed Residential Services 


Becket Massachusetts Adult Staffed Residential Services


Becket Massachusetts Adult Staffed Residential Services operate more than 17 different residential programs in the state with the goal to fill the gap in the service delivery system by providing supports to individuals with significantly challenging behaviors. These can be related to Autism Spectrum Disorders, mental health disorders, intellectual and developmental disorders, and problem sexual behaviors. Becket relies on evidenced-based theories of intervention including Applied Behavior Analysis and Positive Behavior Supports, the Good Lives Model, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Trauma Informed Care.


Our programs are clustered in three distinct regions of the state: Southeast, North Central, and West.


  • Southeast: Lakeville, Freetown, Bourne, New Bedford, Sagamore Beach and Attleboro. 

  • West: Agawam, Southwick, Westfield, and Leicester.

  • North Central: Ashburnham, Clearview, Fitchburg, Westminster, Leominster, Winchendon, and Templeton.

Becket New Hampshire Adult Staffed Residential Services


Becket Adult Intensive Treatment Services (ITS) residential programs serve individuals aged 21 years old and over who have been identified as high risk-high need.  Typically, these individuals have experienced considerable adversity and traumatic experiences in their lives. The individuals we serve have challenging behaviors including problematic sexual behaviors, forensic involvement, fire setting behaviors, and situational aggressive behaviors towards others and/or property. We specialize in treating individuals who have not responded to treatment services elsewhere. The primary focus of Becket’s NH Adult ITS Programs is in fostering the clients’ ability to become autonomous, competent, and connected with others across all areas of their functioning. 


We currently operate six ITS programs in NH, each with a special focus.  


  • In Madison, NH there is a three-bed program for males with complex behavioral and mental health needs and a primary diagnosis of ASD.

  • In Conway, NH there is a three-bed program for females who suffer from various mental illnesses, developmental disabilities and abuse-related complex trauma.

  • In Bethlehem, NH there is one six bed program for males with problematic sexual behaviors and one three bed program which has state of the art environmental modifications specifically to work with men with fire setting behaviors.

  • In Milton NH and Madison NH we operate the Next Steps programs that are three bed step-down programs for males that have met the criteria to be discharged to an ITS program or who are in need of a group home with services that are not quite as pervasive as an ITS program. 


The overarching goals of Becket Adult Staffed Residential Programs include:


  • Providing residents with a safe, home-like, living environment

  • Ensuring the safety of residents and the community by utilizing a holistic, comprehensive, in-house approach to service delivery

  • Creating innovative and genuine opportunities for residents to participate fully and meaningfully in their communities by focusing on personal goals, interests, and hobbies

  • Promoting each resident’s right to self-determination and self-advocacy

  • Using strategies that lead clients toward greater independence and autonomy, and reduce their reliance on supports and services 

  • Assisting individuals in navigating their lives in a way that helps them achieve and exceed their personal dreams and goals
