Many of our clients come to us exhausted, desperate, and scared. Our goal at Skyland Trail South is to reduce the stress of daily living and give clients the support they need to feel safe. The support and services we provide at Skyland Trail South give clients the opportunity to build their capacity, strength and confidence to begin working toward recovery.
We help our clients take steps toward normalizing their daily routine and improving daily living skills. To restore healthy sleep patterns, we set expectations for lights out and wake up times. We also set expectations for personal hygiene and cleanliness of personal and community areas. Morning, evening and weekend meals are prepared onsite by our dining services staff and served in a community dining room. A licensed nurse is onsite 24/7, and our staff administers medications.
Monday through Friday, we provide transportation to the Charles B. West Campus for treatment activities from 10AM to 4PM and lunch. (Clients may drive their own car only after they achieve defined criteria and receive permission from the treatment team.)
Residential clients participate in our Life Enrichment Adult Program (LEAP) on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and on weekends. Our residential staff also organizes activities on-site and in the community. Weekend activities include trips to museums, parks, shopping, and dining opportunities.
