About the Program: We believe that recovery starts from within and will do whatever it takes to support you on your recovery journey. We have a multidisciplinary team that includes a psychiatrist; a nurse; a program coordinator/licensed team lead; a clinician; a peer recovery coach; personal service coordinators with experience in drug, alcohol, and mental health treatment; and specialists in housing, education and employment, who are all here to help you on your path.

Your recovery journey is guided by an individualized service plan. Our staff offers advocacy for individuals who have extensive contacts with the criminal justice system. We will assist you in recovery by tailoring services so you can better manage your conditions, monitor your progress toward your goals, adjust services to fit your changing needs, and partner with community services to ensure continuity of care.
