I understand that the Life Center does not guarantee or promise in any way that the client will feel better and will improve. Drugs may sometimes damage the brain and physical structure of the body to a point where no recovery is possible. The Life Center will do everything possible to help the client have a better life, feel better and by doing so, it is possible that his condition will improve.

The staff at the Life Center will listen and be interested in what the client has to say, they will do what is required to make the client feels he can communicate anything and may be then get a grip on some of the troubling issues.
6- I understand that there is no refund for the service. As stated above, clients might or might not improve depending on the severity of the condition. I understand that working with some clients is often very difficult. That is the reason for the cost of the service. However the Life Center will only charge for the time the client has stayed at the facility. If some weeks were paid in advance but unused, they will be refunded.
7- I understand that very often clients might have an underlying physical condition that could be the cause of his problems. The Life Center suggests strongly that the client receive a thorough physical check by a competent medical doctor, preferably before arriving at the Life Center. I understand that I will ensure to see to it that whatever treatment, supplements, or physical programs are recommended by the doctor, are administered. The staff at the Life Center can help in administrating what the doctor recommends but I will remain responsible for it.

If the client requires special food or all organic food which cost extra then the Life Center and I will discuss a proper financial arrangement.
10- Client should have spending money to buy cigarettes, clothes, soap, shampoo, etc. Usually $50 per week should suffice if the client smokes. Less if he doesn't. A separate check from the regular service cost should be written for spending money. The supervisor will keep track of the expenses.
11- I understand that if client destroys the property, furniture, etc at the facility, I will be responsible for payment of the damages.
12- Since the first thing we try to do with the client is a change of environment, and getting him disconnected with the outside world so he or she can safely rest and calm down, we do not allow internet access, I Pad or cell phones. This should be made known to the client to avoid any upset upon arrival. Our staff can help with that as needed. Phone calls can be arranged using the land line.
13- I understand and agree that the Life Center is not a hospital with lock down facility and in the event that the client might become too psychotic to be controllable, might become violent, might leave the property without authorization, or otherwise might act in a way that is a danger to others or to himself, I will arrange to have the client be discharged from the facility immediately.
