Philosophy of Care
Hope Network believes and practices holistic healthcare. When people seek support from Hope Network, they are met with the knowledge and belief that anyone can improve.
Hope Network promotes the value of whole-health wellness throughout our behavioral health system, as a process of change through which individuals live self-directed lives and partner with a team to reach their full potential. Interventions are built on best practice clinical treatment and support services. All systems within a person’s life can be a part of the individual plan of service that’s created with each consumer, including physical and behavioral healthcare, housing, relationships, legal issues, and more.
Hope Network teams know that challenges can be overcome, and we are honored to be at the foundation of recovery journeys. Strengths, talents, abilities, resources, and values are celebrated throughout the process, and utilized to build a treatment plan that is sustainable for recovery.
Because setbacks are a natural part of life, resilience becomes a key component of recovery. Resilience refers to an individual’s ability to cope with adversity and adapt to challenges or change. It gives an individual the capacity not only to cope with life’s challenges but also to be better prepared for the next stressful situation.
Because a path to wellness is highly individualized, services and supports must be flexible to ensure cultural relevancy. What may work for adults in recovery may be very different for youth or older adults in recovery. Hope Network recognizes these differences and similarities and honors the special needs of each person.
The process of recovery is supported through relationships and social networks, which may include family members and friends who become the champions of their loved one’s journey. Hope Network offers opportunities for these individuals, as well as professional peers, to partner with the people we serve to encourage, challenge, and achieve the highest level of independence.
