ViewPoint Center helps patients develop and practice communication skills throughout their stay. As patients progress, they have the opportunity to earn weekly community outings where they get to practice these skills in the “real world”.
What are the community outings?
Every weekend, patients who earn community outings can go off campus with staff members to take part in fun activities and events. Outings may include:
- Going to the movies
- Community events such as parades and local exhibitions
- The nearby dinosaur park
- Going to the arcade
In addition to providing a great opportunity for patients to practice the skills they’ve learned throughout the treatment process, community outings offer a chance for patients to have fun, relax and enjoy life outside of campus.
