It would quiet the NIMBYs a bit and still stay close to mission of land/institution.
Long-term care facilities might fly, though the focus is more on community-based placements. EOHHS is really pushing "community-based recovery and treatment." A big piece of that is housing (in many cases, in conjunction with HUD) for people with mental illness and substance misuse conditions. You could definitely see some residential unites (fairly standard apartments) for individuals and families with co-occurring conditions. I'd be surprised if you didn't, to be honest.
