Clinic's Community Integration Program Relocates

Wednesday, October 10, 2012
Earlier this year, The Menninger Clinic moved to its new campus. Now, Pathfinder, Menninger’s community integration program, has followed suit by moving to its new location at 6912 Stella Link, just a few miles from The Clinic.
Pathfinder’s new home is 4,000-square feet of leased space in an urban setting, making it ideal for clients who will work, volunteer and live nearby. In addition to a large client lounge, Pathfinder offers private offices for therapeutic work, 12 computers dedicated to client use, a locker room and six bicycles that clients use for transportation to and from the apartment complex many call home while in the program.
“We’re very excited about our new space,” said Mary Oxford, PhD, Pathfinder’s program director. “It’s very inviting and spacious, and our clients really feel comfortable here.”
Pathfinder clients are adults 18 and older, most of whom have recently been discharged from an inpatient treatment facility and are ready to continue their recovery while living with more independence in a less structured environment.
The hallmarks of Pathfinder include:
  • Psychosocial rehabilitation and re-integration
  • Day program and apartment-living options
  • 24/7 support from bachelor’s prepared resident advisors for clients in the apartment-living track
  • Individual recovery plans
  • Individualized career and education assistance, including vocation and readiness assessments, tutoring and help with class selection and registration
  • Supported-employment model to help clients reach vocational goals and explore career development
  • Internships, job opportunities and volunteer experiences
  • Weekly individual and family therapy and case management
  • Group social activities
