Examples of Service Dogs

 

Not a Service Dog

Service Dog:
I have a service dog, may I bring him/her?

We welcome service dogs that are real service dogs, please see below the ADA's definition. 
The ADA states: "Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties. Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA."

We will need ask two ADA approved questions:
(1) is the dog a service animal required because of a disability, and
(2) what work or task has the dog been trained to perform?

 

A true service dog is well behaved and ONLY focused on the individual the animal assists. Because there is a trend for individuals to print fake paperwork, put fake tags on their pet, then attempt to bring their pet to the DIP we must scrutinize a service dogs behavior. Keep in mind, we have a lot of clients in the same room and we must work to assist all clients; thus, if we have an individual with a fake service dog, it places risks to our other clients. If a service dog proves to be a distraction, or acts in a manner not compliant to a service dog, you will be asked to leave the program with no refund.

Can my family or friends visit while at the program? 
Visitors are not allowed. 

 
 

Who do I share a room with? Males are roomed with males and females with females.

Shared Rooms: Shared Rooms are 2-3 people to a room because the room is a suite and the couch has a pull out bed.

 

Double Rooms: Almost all of our locations have double sleeping rooms versus suites, these rooms are assigned two clients to a room. If the hotel is over booked and we have to use a hotel roll-away bed (which are very comfortable), the client who opts for the roll-away receives a discounted program rate.  

Private Rooms: Private rooms are available at an additional fee. Private rooms must be paid for in advance.

 

Can I have stuff dropped off? Yes, you can have small items dropped at the front desk to include clothing, sealed cigarettes, or cash. Before they drop these items off they should let you know. Also, the items should be in a bag that has your name on it. All items dropped for you while you are at the program are subject to search by ARC staff.
