Community Integration Transition Period for New Residents You will be welcome to join your peers on community outings based on your ability to be safeand remain in behavioral control. You will be placed on a 1:1 safety status for the first 24 hoursfollowing your arrival during which time you will not be able to join community outings. You willthen be placed on 15-minute checks and will eventually gain grounds privileges. Staff will workwith you to make changes to your supervision status based on our clinical observations.

Theseoutings can be as simple as shopping trips to the local store or walks in the neighborhood.Successful community integration is a factor in moving forward in your recovery towardsdischarge. To complete our program, you will learn to safely navigate the community in a varietyof environments. Meetings and Transportation We ask that you let staff know about outings you would like to go on at least a day in advance sothat we can plan accordingly. Staff will notify you when a plan is established. In some cases, you may have to wait until the following day based on scheduling needs. Treatment related outings always take priority. You will be asked to work with your case manager to plan trips to visit family. Passes and Protocols (including 1-2-hour passes) After you progress through the various safety supervision statuses you will have the ability to goon passes (independent outings to the community, to visit friends or family, etc.). This processhappens gradually as the clinical team works with you to determine when you are ready to goout on your own. To start, passes occur in 1–2-hour increments. You will create a safety plan with your case manager when you move towards this stage. When you achieve the ability to go on passes, you must fill out a pass request form and submit itto nursing and/or your case manager at least 24 hours before your requested outing (seeResident Pass Form). Additionally, if you join your peers on a community outing, you may choose not to remain with staff – you will need approval from clinical/nursing staff and to plan with staff who are supervising the outing to agree upon a time and place to reconvene.
