Going "Above and Beyond" to get better
The team at CSRS recently completed a “branding” exercise as a way of exploring the common basic underpinnings of the way we work at our residential and outpatient treatment centers. This interesting process revealed a theme that resonated for all of our staff as we explored the many ways we connect with our residents. That theme - “Going above and beyond” - is an underlying principal of the work we do. What does that look like in action?
- We provide 40 hours of classwork to our residents, which goes way beyond the California requirement of 20 hours. Those classes, which cover the disease of addiction, cognitive behavioral therapy, anger management, triggers, life skills and more, give our residents a solid foundation for sustained recovery.
- We are developing a program specifically for Veterans. Already in the lineup are free detox treatments, discounts on record clearances from the Chastaine Law Office, along with free and confidential counseling for Veterans and their families who are struggling with PTSD or other mental health issues. We are also trying to identify a funding stream to make treatment more affordable for our Veterans, so please call us if you have resources in that area.
- We offer free, confidential Family Support Meetings to help our community understand and deal with a loved one’s chemical dependency. You can attend whether or not you’ve got someone in treatment at CSRS. The meetings are led by family counselor and interventionist Ricki Townsend. She’s NOT on our staff, so she refers to us only when appropriate, but she has volunteered for nine years to lead these free, confidential family meetings every Sunday…call us for details.
- OUr Executive Chef rebuilds body, mind and spirit with his Michelin Five Star meals. Check out our May 10 Facebook post to get a taste of what’s he’s dishing out. Recovery never tasted so good!
Even our tag line – “Let’s Get Better Together” captures the essence of “above and beyond.” It means you don’t have to do this alone, we’ve got your back, and we’re in this together. Recovery takes a village, and we are part of your tribe.
