Social skill development and maturity impacts all areas of functioning. We specifically address each participant’s level of functioning in his treatment and transition plan, and our staff are committed to acting as exceptional models of behavior for our participants. Goals of our psychosocial integration program include:
- Enhancing and maturing social skills
- Expanding social awareness and experiences
- Improving quality of life through increased self-esteem
- Obtaining skills for healthy living at home, school, work, and in the community
We provide our clients with the opportunity to attend High Focus Center’s Adult Psychiatric program in order to interact with other young adults at various stages of healing and recovery. As a result, Waypointe residents have the opportunity to become part of a larger community and peer group in similar stages of treatment and growth. We also encourage Waypointe residents to connect with community groups that offer a variety of social-integration and support services in order to further build their support networks.
Waypointe residents also receive exposure to the cultural and historical epicenters of New York City and Philadelphia. Participants are encouraged to experiment with seeing (on or off) Broadway shows, visiting museums, or touring attractions of historical significance. Both cities provide endless numbers of opportunities for all tastes. At Waypointe, a trip is scheduled twice monthly into either New York City or Philadelphia for this purpose.
Additional features of our psychosocial integration program include the following:
