Community resources are available in most communities across the nation. Larger cities generally have more established resources than smaller communities. Every community is different. Community resources can be essential components of a successful discharge plan. Your treatment team will work with you to determine what is available near your home and what you will need to have a successful discharge to home.
Below are listed some of the community resources available in the Salt Lake City area. These may provide a guideline that may help you find resources in your area as well.
