Social Model Recovery Systems (a non-profit 501(c)3 California corporation) provides direct treatment services (at 12 locations in Los Angeles and Orange Counties) for those whose lives have become unmanageable due to alcohol and other drug use and/or whose mental health issues are interfering with leading productive lives. Thousands of individuals have found help in our programs since 1987. We know that ultimately recovery is a personal choice, but we here at Social Model Recovery Systems are here to assist you in your steps to a healthier lifestyle.
As everyone in our programs contributes in providing a safe and nurturing environment, each is expected to role model healthy behaviors for each other during the treatment process. In our social model settings, the emphasis of recovery is based upon the relationship between the participant and his or her environment (including other participants and staff as a whole). It is the collective and integrated team of employees and participants more than one individual member which creates the ideal social model environment. It is the healing created by everyones accumulated knowledge, collective experiences, and cohesiveness that make the social model process work.
Although individual interactions between single staff and participants are supportive, it is the group interactions which prove to be of greater benefit.
