  • At appropriate times during the therapy process, discharge plans are addressed through individual and group sessions and by the DOCR case manager.
  • Contacts are made by members of the treatment team to determine the appropriateness and availability of aftercare services.
  • When the discharge plan is finalized, appointments are made and appropriate information is sent to the aftercare provider.
    • The assigned Licensed Addiction Counselor (LAC) will initiate form 421 one week prior to discharge.
    • The following appointments and plans will be completed 24 hours prior to discharge; the LAC will complete follow-up care appointments including psychiatric appointments and medical appointments.

TREATMENT PROGRAMMING

Each of the TRCC wards operates a unique program with its own clinical team. Programs are specifically designed and implemented based on therapeutic value for the population served. This is determined by following best practice standards for the populations served and through assessment of the resident prior to and during the treatment process. Multiple disciplinary teams are made up from a selection of occupational therapists, psychiatrist, recreational therapists, nursing staff, addiction counselors, psychologist, social workers and vocational rehabilitation counselors who all provide direct care as well as team participation and consultation. Dietary, chaplaincy, audiometric, and specialized therapies are available on a hospital-wide basis.
