Planning for Discharge

Discharge planning begins at the time of admission. Laurel Oaks Behavioral Health Center staff members will establish an individualized goal for your child or teen and develop a plan to achieve the goal(s).

We ask parents/guardians to provide names and contact numbers for the outpatient providers that have worked with the patient prior to admission, so that we can coordinate with them in planning aftercare.

Our treatment team will provide recommendations for services and set up aftercare appointments. If the patient is to be discharged with medications, the attending physician will write the appropriate prescriptions. Members of the treatment team will meet with parents/guardians to review discharge instructions, safety plans, and medications. We will also ask that parents/guardians complete a satisfaction survey.

Please contact us with any questions about your child’s treatment at Laurel Oaks Behavioral Health Center.
