The Community Habilitation Program (CHP) is an independent living skills training and day program for individuals, age 18 and over, with severe disabilities. The program provides at least six (6) hours of daily services to adults with significant disabilities needing independent life skills training and other services to engage in socialization and integration in the community.
Participation at CHP is by referral only from the Guam Behavioral Health and Wellness Center (GBHWC) as part of the individual’s treatment plan.
The Community Habilitation Program will conduct an orientation with the individual and family on the program and activities, reinforcing areas as outlined in the individual’s treatment plan. Progress is noted monthly to determine any updates to the treatment plan.
