How do I follow someone’s progress at Skyland Trail?

With the client's permission, we will contact you and request your input as we develop a client's recovery goals and treatment plan. Our holistic approach to treatment includes the involvement of supportive family members, referring psychiatrists or therapists and other key supporters over the course of each client's recovery.

What happens at discharge?

A key milestone in recovery and community reintegration is the patient's return to the care of the referring psychiatrist or other professional. With the client's permission, Skyland Trail will communicate to you the discharge plan and date.
