The Northeast Community Center for Behavioral Health – offers three community integrated recovery centers (CIRC) that provide recovery-oriented site-based and community-based psychiatric rehabilitation programming in conjunction with outpatient mental health treatment.
Our network of programs is designed to serve members with varying degrees of social, emotional, cognitive, co-occurring and psychiatric need who are eighteen years of age or older. Each program provides strong certified peer specialist support and peer government involvement. Members have a wide array of peer and staff-led site based activities/groups, as well as evening and weekend community integration activities which are offered to build each member’s new found sense of accomplishment.
The teams include psychiatrists, clinicians, certified peer specialists and recovery specialists who work with each member from a strength-based approach to help members manage their illness in a manner that promotes normalized adult activities in the community setting, encouraging independent movement towards educational attainment, vocational training, volunteering, and employment.
Further, each CIRC team works to incorporate family, friends and the community into the member’s support team to enhance their overall involvement in the recovery process. Twenty-four hour on-call support is provided.
