Discharge Planning

Discharge planning begins early in the beginning of treatment and is a critical component of a participants personalized treatment plan. It’s basically a roadmap for how they are going to live life after inpatient treatment. Resolutions Recovery Centers discharge plans are unique to each participant. Resolutions Recovery Center is working hand-in-hand with the Pittsburgh School of Social Work on a promising practice for discharge planning called Family Group Decision Making (FGDM) and Family Team Meeting (FTM).

Family Group Decision Making (FGDM) – A promising practice utilizing family strengths to solve problems. A facilitated and coordinated meeting that begins at day one of services through the development of the treatment plan, identifying strengths and supports and all comes together at discharge. The FGDM process is a strengths-based empowerment model designed to join the wider family group, including relatives, friends, community members, and others, to collectively make decisions to resolve an identified concern(s). FGDM is primarily based on aspects of the Family Unity Model and the Family Group Conferencing process established in New Zealand. FGDM conferences in Pennsylvania generally include extensive preparation; an opening and sharing of strengths, concerns, and resources; private family time; family presentation of the plan and plan acceptance by all participants; and plan implementation and monitoring.

FTM conferences in Pennsylvania generally include extensive preparation; an opening and sharing of strengths, concerns, and resources; presentation of the plan and plan acceptance by all participants; and plan implementation and monitoring.

Difference between FGDM and FTM is private family time. Providers are present during the development of the plan during the FTM.
