Mental Health Management and Addiction Recovery
We provide opportunities for the resident to increase and understand their mental health diagnosis. We also actively help the resident work toward relapse prevention by preventing or intervening with substance abuse, mental health symptoms, and other behavioral issues. We provide residents with the knowledge they need to effectively manage their mental health and/or addiction by engaging them in therapeutic groups specific to the resident, assisting them in developing a WRAP, recognizing triggers and symptoms, and teaching positive coping skills, all while promoting their well-being.
Leisure Time, Community Activities, and Family Contacts
We provide and actively promote resident participation in a variety of daily activities. These are designed to provide the needed stimulation consistent with that of the resident’s needs and abilities. This programming also includes family-type social events such as picnics, movies, bowling, swimming, hiking, fairs, games, spectator sports, going out to eat, etc. Oak Run is provided with the usual home entertainment equipment, as well as free wireless Internet. We encourage each resident to participate in all community outings. Weekly schedules and notices of community activities are made available to them on a daily basis. We also provide residents with a “house" iPad to utilize. We encourage each resident to maintain family contact through phone calls and letter writing, unless detrimental to their case and/or health. Each resident will receive unlimited long-distance.
The medication monitoring system encourages residents to be responsible for taking their medications on time, taking the prescribed dosages, the correct number of pills, and being knowledgeable about the purpose of the medication. All medication will be self-administered by the resident with general supervision from the non-medically licensed staff.
Daily Living Skills Training
We encourage, as a part of the treatment plan, each resident to be responsible for the upkeep of his or her personal space and belongings. This may include making their bed, dusting, sweeping, doing their own laundry, any additional household chores that may be assigned, meal preparation, etc. Personal hygiene is also included in this area. While we do not provide personal cares, we do provide training in dressing, grooming, bathing, etc. as needed.
Survival, Social Skills, and Safety Training
We teach and provide opportunities for the resident to increase their skills in the following areas where assistance may be needed: education programming, shopping, use of public transportation, vocational, and any necessary job skills that may be required. We train residents to develop an understanding of areas where precautions may be necessary including, but not limited to emergency plans, community safety, as well as abuse and vulnerability issues.
