The Basic Premise
Complex human conditions are seen as an expectation, not an exception. Furthermore, the individuals we are serving will be viewed as recurrently successful, not as chronic relapsers. Our hope is that people in recovery will be greatly satisfied and feel recognized for their recovery achievements.
Every program in the MC3 will become a welcoming, trauma informed, recovery-oriented, co-occurring capable program.
Standards across our system will be that all programs are" Welcoming, Accessible, Integrated, Continuous, and Comprehensive.
A mechanism by which established diagnosis-specific and stage-specific interventions, for each disorder or condition, are combined into a person-centered plan and set of interventions.
MC3 is dedicated to the Continuous, Comprehensive Integrated System of Care (CCISC) process based on the following eight best practice principles developed by Dr. Ken Minkoff and Dr. Chris Cline:
Co-occurring issues and conditions are an expectation, not an exception.
