Consumer Orientation

In addition to the orientation that consumers receive at administrative intake, Chester House members and staff assist new members through a complete orientation to the clubhouse.  Each new member is presented with a Member Handbook, given an extensive tour and orientation to the facility, and informed of our Health and Safety procedures.


Most members then choose to rotate through each of our three work units, spending at least one day in each to determine which unit and which staff person can best meet their needs.  Prospective members work with a mentor throughout the orientation process and meet with orientation staff individually and in an orientation group.  At this time, an assessment is completed by our Intake Coordinator and reviewed by a LCSW and a treatment plan is formulated with the prospective member.  Progress during the orientation phase is documented via Progress notes.
