Staff provides assistance for those seeking to live, work, learn and participate fully and productively in the communities of East Jefferson County and support for those rebounding from challenges, adversity, trauma and stress by building a sense of mastery, competence and hope.

RECOVERY refers to the process in which people are able to live, work, learn, and participate fully in their communities. For some individuals, recovery is the ability to live a fulfilling and productive life despite a disability. For others, recovery implies the reduction or complete remission of symptoms. Science has shown that having hope plays an integral role in an individual’s recovery.

RESILIENCE means the personal and community qualities that enable us to rebound from adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or other stresses – and to go on with life with a sense of mastery, competence, and hope. We now understand from research that resilience is fostered by positive individual traits, such as optimism; good problem-solving skills and treatments.
