RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM

PROGRAM INTRODUCTION

Wayback’s Four Phase Program is designed to move clients through a variety of activities to attain competency levels for graduation.

ASSESSMENT PHASE (2-4 weeks)
During this phase the applicant resides in a Wayback house and undertakes normal program activities.  At the conclusion of the assessment period the applicant appears before the Review Panel who assess their engagement and determine if the applicant should progress to Phase I, have their assessment phase extended or be discharged.

PHASE I (Duration 3 months)
Phase I could be described as the ‘settling in phase’ where the focus is on establishing and engaging in program activities.  Clients are not permitted weekend leave, to work or undertake external courses whilst in Phase I.

PHASE II (2 months)

Phase II could be described as the ‘consolidation and maintenance phase’ in which clients begin to display positive traits with commitment building in rehabilitation and other positive activities.

PHASE III (2 months)

Phase III can be described as the ‘progression and maintenance phase’ in which clients continue to work towards independance.  During this phase, clients have maintained their drug use, engaged in a postive activity and are working towards securing stable accomodation. 

PHASE IV (3 months)

This is the final stage of Wayback’s rehabilitation program and could be described as the ‘letting go phase’ where clients accept responsibility in an ongoing rehabilitation maintenance plan.  During this phase clients are given greater independence as they begin returning to the community.

Demerit points
Whilst at Wayback clients are subject to a ‘demerit point system’ in which demerit points are attracted for non-compliance to program requirements.  At 20 demerit points clients receive a written warning and at 32 demerit points they are discharged from the program.

Client Discharge
If a client is discharged they may apply for readmission after a period of 8 weeks but must be able to prove an ability to fully engage in the program before readmission is approved.
