Value Statement...

We believe in order to achieve the vision and mission of the organization, we must foster and promote a system of care and recovery in partnership and collaboration with public and private organizations that span the health and human services spectrum. We also believe that our advocacy, service, and business relationships must be grounded in mutual respect, responsibility, and accountability.

We believe behavioral health disorders are public health concerns that are both preventable and treatable, and that recovery can and does happen. Our responsibility is to the individuals, families and communities affected by these chronic diseases. As such, they must be engaged and empowered to help determine the course of services provided. Our work must consistently bear the hallmarks of quality and accountability while embracing sound public policy and evidence-based practices.

We believe every person has a human right to be free from behavioral health and related health and social services inequalities and that access to prevention, treatment and recovery services should be readily available to all who seek it regardless of race, color, sex, national origin, age, religion, disability, economic status or sexual orientation. We also believe individuals in recovery from behavioral health disorders should be free from discrimination in housing, employment, and insurance coverage, as well as other aspects of daily life and that the federal and state civil rights and protections afforded them should be fully enforced.

Our employees are the most valued assets of our corporation and hold a shared responsibility to fulfill our mission. We believe that the quality, motivation, and performance of our employees are the key factors in achieving our vision and mission. Accordingly, we are dedicated to assisting every employee in realizing his or her full potential. We are committed to diversity, equal opportunity and fair treatment, and strive for an organizational structure and culture that promotes employee involvement, open communication, teamwork and cooperation.
