Serving Our Western New York Community since 1880
We are proud to provide mental health and recovery services, especially designed to meet the needs of individuals 18 and older living in Erie, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, and Niagara Counties. Our six Recovery and Treatment Centers (RTCs) are easy to locate, and appointments are conveniently available.¬† Walk-in and crisis appointments are available as well.
In addition to traditional mental health services, we also provide non-traditional ways of helping people, moving beyond treatment to a focus on rehabilitation and recovery. We help people develop personal supports needed to recover from mental illness and live successfully in the community.¬†¬†
The shared vision of staff and peers for our outpatient programs is to provide services that help the individuals live fulfilling lives in their communities.¬†We all believe that people can and do recover from even the most serious of mental illnesses.
The individuals we serve deserve the best possible services, so we continually strive to use best practices that have been found to help people achieve the most positive outcomes. Our staff works to develop trusting partnerships that support people on their journey toward a better quality of life.¬†
We want people to feel comfortable coming to our service sites and confident that with the help we provide they will be able to reclaim their goals and dreams. We are committed to providing services that best meet each individual‚Äôs needs and wants. Our goal is to promote self determination and choice.¬†Our services are designed to create self responsibility, resilience, and also give people the opportunity to learn the skills they feel they need to work towards a fulfilling life. ¬†
It‚Äôs important to understand that we are one piece of the recovery process: we emphasize helping the individuals we serve find and build the natural supports in their community that will make their lives more meaningful and satisfying. We are committed to doing everything we can to make this journey of recovery a successful one.
