Residents develop the communication skills of active listening, self expression, and conﬂict resolution. The staﬀ is dedicated to providing a consistent environment that helps residents develop self-awareness and accountability for their actions. Coast residents enjoy shopping, taking walks on the beach, going to movies, working out at the gym and volunteering in the community.
