The Council's Mission : The Council offers hope and recovery to people struggling with addictive behaviors and strengthens our community through prevention and education programs.
The Council's Core Values
HOPE - Our attitude, relationships and skills project the belief that positive change can occur and goals can be achieved.
CARING & COMPASSION - We understand that those we serve have needs for caring and compassion as they do the hard work of addressing their addiction. We communicate this from our initial welcoming message and continue throughout their stay. Our staff has similar needs, and to be effective, we need to encourage a culture of caring and compassion for each other.
COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE - Our services reflect a thorough understanding of the strengths and needs of those we serve and offer a range of high quality, evidence-based practices in the field of addiction. We continuously improve our services through assessing our outcomes, our wise use of resources, responding to changing community needs and supporting the development of our staff.
Our professional staff includes counselors and educators with diverse backgrounds and training including the basic competencies required by the State Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) for chemical dependency treatment. All are required to meet professional standards and the OASAS code of ethics. The Board of Directors and staff hold a deep respect for the diversity of the individuals and community we serve.
