Our Program is based in stimulation, facilitation and support recovery for adults with psychiatric disorders and help them break the custodial chain between consumers and providers. Our program guideline goes into dept about personal, programmatic, and systematic perspectives. Our program is developed as follow:
Self-direction: when a individual is initially assess for needs the clinicians emphasizes in the most important part of the treatment and transition to recovery which is consumers lead, control, exercise choice over, and determine their own path of recovery by maximizing autonomy, self-agency, and independence. Individualized and Person-Centered: there are multiple pathways to recovery based on the child/youth unique needs, preferences, experiences including past trauma, and cultural backgrounds in all of its diverse representations. Individuals also identify recovery as being an on-going journey, an end result as well as an overall paradigm for achieving optimal mental health.
Empowerment: One of the focuses of Citywide plan to recovery is to educate of the authority to exercise choices and make decisions that impact their lives and are educated and supported in so doing.
Holistic: recovery encompasses the varied aspects of an individual’s life including mind, body, spirit, and community including such factors as housing, employment, education, mental health and healthcare services, complementary and naturalistic services,
addictions treatment, spirituality, creativity, social networks, community participation, and family supports as determined by the person.
Citywide has developed many programs (groups) to assist in the integration of family into a variety of methodical systems that is directed to family first, community interaction and programs to develop skills that will serve as a collateral for the members future.
Non-Linear: recovery is not a step-by-step process but one based on continual growth, occasional setbacks, and learning from these experiences. After a lengthy process and journey to recovery and after a period of no longer than a year, our program directors and team of professionals review each one of the recorded files, with the history of each and every one of the members serviced, with the purpose to determine effectiveness of treatment and to recommend changes if necessary.
Strengths-Based: As described previously our Adult services recovery focus is on valuing and building on the multiple strengths, resiliency, coping abilities, inherent worth, and capabilities of each one, individually.
Peer Support: Our Team of Peer Specialist has an invaluable role of mutual support wherein consumers encourage other consumers in recovery while providing a sense of belongingness, supportive relationships, valued roles and community is recognized and promoted.
Respect: Not only does Citywide promote an awareness of respect to others we also have emphasizes and provide detail orientation and information for members and of course to assist them with resources that could direct them to proper assistance as needed. Our Clinicians also promote, community, systems, and societal acceptance and appreciation of others - including the protection of consumer rights and the elimination of discrimination and stigma – are crucial in achieving recovery. Self-acceptance and regaining one’s belief in one’s self is also vital, as is respect for others.
Responsibility: Even though members with mental health issue might have limited comprehension, Citywide professionals encourage each and every individual according to age of the responsibility to care for themselves, and how important it is to participate actively in treatment, and never less to have personal responsibility for their own self-care and journeys to recovery. This involves taking steps towards one’s goals that may require great courage.
Hope: Through an enormous and rigorous effort to maintain our professional staff well trained and informed Citywide has focused in reinforcing the importance of Hope. Citywide Recovery and resilience plans provide the essential and motivating message that people can and do overcome the barriers and obstacles that confront them. There are increasing numbers of evaluation tools available that focus on recovery indicators and outcomes in treatment settings and services. Regular evaluation of services provides not only quality assurance, but also benchmarks for progress in transformation and a pool of evidence that demonstrates program effectiveness.
