When you arrive on your first day
Arrival is a free period when people are arriving and organizing themselves for the day. If you are scheduled for the morning you will be provided with breakfast and lunch. If you are scheduled for the afternoon you will receive a refreshment at arrival and then dinner later in the day. The day may be busy for you. The first person you will talk to is the Registered Nurse who will have you sign your consent for treatment forms, conduct a health and physical and review your medications. You will also talk with the Nurse Practitioner or Physician who will conduct your psychiatric evaluation and place you in your group. If at any time throughout the day you begin to feel anxious or confused please let a mental health tech, nurse or therapist know and we will help you with feeling more comfortable in this new environment. We are always happy to help you and welcome you to our facility.
