At the Home of New Vision, we believe in using the Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC) approach coupled with relational and empowerment models in our therapeutic services to drug and alcohol addiction. These models acknowledge that community and peer connections are fundamental to the growth, recovery, and healing of addiction. At the Home of New Vision, we encourage the development of mutually supportive and empathetic bonds with others and the community system. We have found that this assists in developing a healthier definition of self, autonomy and competency.
At the Home of New Vision, we recognize that chemically dependent individuals are not only faced with the difficulties of recovering from addiction, but that they must also contend with systemic biases, and oppression related to gender, ethnicity, economic status, sexual orientation, marital, and parental status. The ROSC approach not only addresses the importance of community connections and peers, it also identifies the importance of systems as it relates to recovery and the stigmatization of addiction. Over the years, we have found that when these issues are addressed, there is a correlation with higher self-esteem and self-sufficiency.
