Helping with Recovery - 5:13
with Jill Blackson, Deputy Director of Community Care Services
Posted Jul 02, 2018
Community Care Services (CCS) is a nonprofit agency that serves people with mental health and substance use disorders. They operate a variety of programs for children and adults that focus on the individual’s unique needs. CCS starts with the person first — developing innovative services that provide the care, resources, and connections to help each person in the best way possible. Recovery is possible. Recovery is defined as the process through which people find ways of living meaningful lives without ongoing symptoms of their conditions. We believe all people have the inherent right to find their individual path to what is meaningful, and we are here to support that process.
