The first two weeks are an induction period during which the Resident gains first hand experience in the routine and the character of Charis. Written assessments are made concerning alcohol, drug and gambling histories; psychological, spiritual and social areas; and other practical matters such as housing, legal, debts etc. During this time he and the staff determine whether Charis is going to be right for him. If it is, a specific individual 'service user plan' is drawn up and the Resident then signs a written undertaking (statement of intent), committing himself to continuing the programme.
