Clients live in a safe, drug-free environment for an average of 30 to 45 days with goals targeted towards stabilizing the client and to moving them closer to independent living. All clients receive a needs assessment and are linked to community resources, and psycho-social assessments are conducted by licensed social workers to determine client needs and barriers.
Based on psycho-social assessments and eligibility, clients can enter the transitional program for an average of 30 to 45 days. They participate in Recovery Day Management Services including life skills and relapse prevention groups, employment readiness, and community linkages for independent housing. A licensed case manager completes a Personal Growth Plan and links clients to community resources for mental health counseling, anger management, 12-step support and additional employment resources.
