PEOPLE R Us
We are specifically targeting behavioral and therapeutic issues surrounding substance abuse while considering the unique emotional and psychiatric needs of the individual. Our program is based on the 12 step model of treatment which considers addiction a disease with only cure being abstinence. The 12 step program aims to help individuals accept their diagnosis and begin to take responsibility for their lives through both individual and group counseling. All of our clients have co-occurring disorders, mental illnesses with substance abuse issues. During their stay, a primary goal is to address the denial and manipulation that are typically hallmarks of addiction through structure, limits, and therapeutic confrontation. Throughout their stay the clients require monitoring of their mood (withdrawals, outbursts) and their medication needs.
COMMITTED COMMUNITY MENTORS
Committed Community Mentors operates out of Philadelphia, PA. Tyrone G. Morris, MSW, who as an extension of previous endeavors as a child welfare supervisor, youth basketball coach, case manager, and experienced youth advocate, conceptualized the business with the idea of exposing our urban youth to a wide variety of life learning experiences. He found that as a young leader he had a profound effect on the lives of most of his clients, relating to them on the same level, serving as a positive role model.
