Solstice believes in Transition Support, after a student has left our care. Research has shown that students tend to struggle more within the two months immediately after completing treatment. This is why Solistice includes 2 months of aftercare within tuition, for every graduating student and their family. Solistice's aftercare program is designed to lead to greater success after treatment because it supports the work accomplished while a client is enrolled in the treatment program.
During the months prior to transition, there is diligent planning to assist the student and their family to manage the expected bumps as they continue on their journey.
The plan is driven by our guiding principles:
- To educate the parents and students about the transition process – what to expect and how to plan for it.
- Three months before graduation our students and families begin the discussion of transition with our Transition Coach. This is where the coach assists families in the process of building a supportive network back in the home environment and within their community.
- Finally, within the process of treatment, Solstice continues to build the utilization of new skills and processes built during treatment back at home and school. This often requires parents and family to have new ways of thinking. This phase is where we are also going to visit the families in their homes and provide coaching in their home environment.
Our Transition Coach works with each family to creatively approach these solutions to ensure optimum success. From the first day a student and family enrolls, the goal is to make sure this is a long lasting change that sets our families up for success.
