Transitional Rehabilitation Program
What's the Transitional Rehabilitation Program (TRP) all about?
The Transitional Rehabilitation Program (TRP) is designed for clients who are likely to be placed in independent or semi-independent living arrangements in the community when their stay at SLPRC is concluded. The focus of the program is therefore the development of the skills or use of resources to function as independently as possible.
TRP is here to help consumers see that life beyond SLPRC is possible. The TRP staff will work in partnership with the consumers through different phases of recovery from mental illness and towards release. The ultimate goal is for consumers to live in the community.
How does this program work?
The program is divided into three stages:
- Getting Ready to Set Goals - The first stage is called Readiness Assessment and Readiness Development. During this stage, consumers talk a lot about past living, working, learning and socializing experiences. This helps to find consumers' strengths. The work during this stage help build trust which is important as the consumers develop support groups for their recovery.
- Choosing Goals and Making Plans - During this stage consumers begin choosing an Overall rehabilitation Goal. Whatever the goal, it's something the consumer want to do that can realistically be accomplished.
- Getting and Practicing Skills - During this stage consumers work on getting the skills needed and then practicing them so that they stay with them. Often, new skills are learned with the help of staff members.
