Pathfinder, a community re-integration program

Pathfinder Program Details

We work with each client to develop an individual recovery plan, which is the blueprint for treatment, recovery and life. Frequently updated throughout the participant’s stay, it contains goals, responsibilities and other individualized plans for each individual’s recovery. It’s a person-centered plan that keeps everyone involved in the participant’s care focused and motivated to achieve goals and move toward an individualized concept of “a life worth living.”
