Behavioral Health Program

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:
    • Hope
    • Self-Direction
    • Individualized and Person-Centered Care
    • Empowerment
    • Holistic Approach
    • Non-Linear Process
    • Strengths-Based
    • Peer support
    • Respect
    • Responsibility
  • Clark County has identified resiliancy as an additional component of recovery which is addressed in ADAPT.
