Mental Health and Wellness

Our Commitment

We are committed to a future where recovery is the expected outcome and when mental illness can be prevented or cured. We envision a nation where everyone with a mental illness will have access to early detection and the effective treatment and supports essential to live, work, learn and participate fully in their community.

Substance Use Treatment

Many Paths

There is not “one way” to achieve recovery. There are many roads to recovery and our objective is to help each person find the path that works best for them rather than dictate a single path. Thus, it is important that treatment be individualized to reflect the needs and goals of each individual and to treat any relapse that may occur as a bump in the road to recovery. We also believe that it is important to build on an individual’s strengths rather than solely focus on one’s problems or diagnosis.
