Planning for a patient’s discharge is an important step in the overall treatment at Youth Home. Discharge planning begins on day one of treatment. Our goal is to provide patients with the therapeutic and life skills necessary to function in a home setting.
While in treatment, each patient may have different discharge goals and placement options. Some will return home to their parents/relatives while others will return to foster care or a group home setting. It is the treatment team’s primary goal to make sure patients are placed where their needs will be met medically, educationally, and therapeutically.
