Recovery Advocate (Current Employee) – New Bedford, MA – March 21, 2016
I am working with duel diagnosis clients at Fellowship Health Resources in the Therapeutic Respite Program who is contracted by the DMH. our mission is to assist people of all ages to improve their behavior health, well being, and quality of life. I believe service is based of hope, respect, ethical behavior. and genuine caring for people. We utilize a prism model of person centered, respectful, individualized, and strength based. I case manage the clients after they are discharged from crisis. I support them in obtaining if they need: insurance benefits, income benefits, providers, education on their diagnosis and medication and support them in obtaining a safe living environment if needed with the support of the DMH for ; independent living, group homes, substance abuse facilities: halfway houses or sober living environments. I work with the team along with clients as it is individualized treatment plans. The hardest part of the job is getting all benefits and safe living environment in place within 30 days which we are up to a 30 day program. I enjoy watching the progress of the clients and being successful in their individualized recover plan.
Supportive, helpful, giving hope, respectful, team work
The con about this program is the short amount of time to achieve the clients goals.
