The Independence Project provides unique, specialized services that are designed to support individuals having difficulties based on mental health needs and/or substance abuse issues.
Many families are frustrated with a system of care that is disconnected. We often hear that it is extremely difficult to discover, access, and then navigate services or community resources. We offer support for individuals new to recovery or still finding their way.
Our staff are highly qualified and well trained in the recovery process. We believe in assisting individuals and their families by offering community-based support, education, and advocacy. Our goal is to help our clients reclaim their lives and build on their strengths while we support successful life transitions.
Our staff will meet people where they are in the recovery process and help guide them through positive steps in making healthy choices. Together we will design a plan building on strengths and helping individuals become empowered to develop goals and utilize community resources that will lead to an improved quality of life.
