Recovery Model

This system incorporates evidence-based practices and emphasizes “power with” practices that aim to help individuals learn to make choices that lead to self-control, self-responsibility, and self-determination. Staff work with individuals within their cultural dynamic in building independence and self-responsibility in order to nurture their recovery and successfully transition them home or to less restrictive community settings.
