What Happens Next
All residents will participate in creating a plan for their return to the community with the support of treatment staff. Work on a transition plan will begin early and will be a collaborative process between the participant, staff and the appropriate community-based resources. It will also involve the participant’s family or other supports and, whenever possible, a family session will be held with the participant and family members to review the transition plan prior to discharge.
