Wellness Program (Clubhouse Style)

The Wellness Program is based upon a clubhouse model where a full spectrum of psycho-social support services can be accessed. The Wellness Services Program is designed to provide “hard rehabilitative services” that include recovery based education, job readiness training, career planning, literacy, social and community skills training and linkages with other community based health services. "Soft" rehabilitative services are an additional and complementary component to services that include leisure-time planning, the pursuit of personal interests and the development of hobbies and talents in the areas of occupational and art therapies, community integration, and social skills training.
