Recovery Station provides you with professional advice and support to help you overcome any difficulty you might have with community access, whether due to physical or psychosocial barriers. By addressing the issues that prevent or limit community access, our team aims to address:
- anxiety management/distress tolerance
- thought challenging/reality testing
- safety in public settings
- problem solving
- confidence in use of public transport
- access to timetables and instructions on how to use them
We provide training in the use of public transport, mobility skills or orientation for a person with visual impairment or training in driving using adapted equipment or extra tuition required due to a person’s disability. It has been shown that if people learn to travel independently, their mental health, physical health and overall well-being improves.
Recovery Station understands the important role that transport plays to enable an individual to access the community, social, economic and remains involved in daily life activities. Our program typically consists of 3 – 6 sessions of 60 minutes each and held on a weekly basis. A program action plan is developed based on client goals and pre and post evaluation is also conducted to review progress.
