The ESCSB believes that recovery is possible for individuals who suffer from mental illness or a co-occurring substance abuse disorder. The recovery process begins with a thorough understanding of the individual's presenting concerns in the context of his or her bio-psycho-social history.
During this beginning or assessment phase, the individual with the assistance of the treatment provider, begins to formulate the goals they wish to accomplish during treatment. The ESCSB treatment team will then meet to decide which services or treatment providers can best assist the individual in meeting their personal goals. Often an array of services is needed to meet the individual's goals.
When multiple services are provided, the ESCSB staff members coordinate the services so the individual can participate in a seamless plan.
