Philosophy of the Program
- ADAPT’s person-centered care is based on the belief that people can and do recover from mental illness.
- The goal of care is to partner with people in making choices that lead to recovery.
- The individual directs every aspect of their care.
- ADAPT is an "oasis" where individuals can find support, recovery education and skills, symptom relief and hope for their future.
- The individual works together with a team of peers and professionals and personal support people to plan participation in the critical activities.
- Families are an integral part of care if the person desires their participation.
- An important part of the recovery process has to do with making effective choices.
- Individuals are coached to evaluate their choices by deciding if choices take them closer to or further from their recovery goals.
- All ADAPT activities and discussions are guided by the 10 Fundamental Components of Recovery presented in the National Consensus Statement on Mental Health Recovery Pillars (Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration).
- In ADAPT the 10 Fundamental Components of Recovery are referred to as the 10 Pillars of Recovery.
- The 10 Pillars of Recovery in ADAPT are:
- Individualized and Person-Centered Care
- Holistic Approach
- Non-Linear Process
- Peer support
- Clark County has identified resiliancy as an additional component of recovery which is addressed in ADAPT.
