From the time they are admitted, we begin preparing our patients for a smooth transition home following discharge. As recovery progresses, therapeutic passes are available so that patients can plan a few hours outside the center with family or friends on weekends. In this way, they can try out new skills within the safety of our program.


Patients in the Inpatient Program often transition to the Partial Hospital Program, which provides an interim level of structure and enables our staff to continue to support them as they work toward greater independence. Aftercare appointments are also arranged prior to discharge. Together, these efforts help our patients step back into life prepared for a new beginning and armed with the tools they need to be physically and emotionally healthy.
