Social Skills and Recreation

Appropriate social behavior is an essential part of adult life. That’s why an ongoing emphasis at Independence Center is learning and enhancing social skills and effectively using leisure time. Sharing an apartment while working or attending classes strengthens social skills and establishes friendships. Meetings, activities and individual and group counseling are all used to help facilitate emotional growth and change. While we encourage each person to develop their own interests, our program offers scheduled recreation and planned and informal activities throughout the week.
