The residential program
Your residency should be considered a transitional period in which there are many things to be accomplished, in a very short period of time. It is therefore important to utilize our services and program effectively and appropriately.

Upon your arrival, you will be met by a staff member who will explain the general rules and regulations of the CRF. The caseworker will complete, with your assistance, the admission questionnaire. You will be advised of all the rules and regulations as well as a review of all your release conditions. The caseworker will also show you the physical layout of the facility; introduce you to the staff members and other residents. A bedroom and linen will be assigned for the duration of your stay.

In the next few days, you will be assigned a clinical supervisor and in conjuncture with the referent agency, a personalized and individualized case plan will be developed in order to meet your personal goals/objectives. During this meeting, goals will be set in order to meet your employment, educational, personal or emotional needs or risks.
