Middle Peninsula Northern Neck (MPNN) Community Services Board (CSB) operates two recovery houses, Discovery 1 and Discovery 2 for individuals who experience mental health disorders or co-occurring disorders. Each house has six transitional beds and two beds for individuals who are experiencing a mental health crisis. Both houses provide a stable resident for individuals working towards recovery. Residents are expected, as their treatment plan identifies, activities during the daytime to assist in their recovery.
