Our Vision

Honor and give awareness and insight through our educational, professional and personal experiences

Open the doors to serve and give back to our community because God and so many others have helped us to be where we are today

Promote a holistic interventional approach to mental health healing and wellness

Encourage people to keep hope and faith alive in order to sustain healing and recovery


Treatment Philosophy

Providing a holistic integrated approach to treating mental illness and substance use disorders that focuses on three goals such as Intervention, Stabilization, and Rehabilitation for recovery.

Our treatment philosophy is meeting our patients where they are while suspending judgments, eliminating biases, and providing patient-centered, goal-directed care in their best interest through the implementation of unique handpicked theories and applications that meet their needs. This is in conjunction with faith and cultural sensitivity. In addition, medication management is integrated at times along with psychotherapy for some patient's optimal level of care.

We believe that our job is to engage, encourage and empower patients to meet acceptance, be accountable, promote self-love and improve their self-esteem. We give our patients insight into challenges in their lives so that they can develop better ways to cope and gain awareness in their healing journey.

Mission Statement

"Our faith-based practice has a mission to provide CARE in helping patients Cope, by providing Appropriate culturally sensitive support, providing and maintaining Respect and Empowering lives."

What our patients said?

"Great read. Very easy to understand and follow. I really applaud the fact that although this was written from an African American perspective it is useful across racial lines."
