ATLANTA – The Skyland Trail Transitional Living Program offers independent living apartments for adult clients transitioning from residential to day treatment or community reintegration. To provide more support during this transition, Skyland Trail recently added:
- An expanded transitional staff team, consisting of an onsite transitional assistant, a transitional nurse, two independence coaches and a dedicated recreational therapist
- Onsite hours for a licensed nurse to help with medications and wellness checks
- Additional onsite therapeutic and skills-based groups throughout the week and more staff-led community outings and activities
Transitional living may be an option for some clients admitting directly to day treatment if clinically appropriate, especially if they are transferring from another residential treatment program.
