To promote lasting mental health recovery, we engage a caring team of psychiatrists, licensed therapists, recovery coordinators, recovery coaches. We engage a caring team, Psychiatrist, Licensed Therapists, Recovery Coordinators (RC), and Recovery Coaches to promote lasting mental health recovery. The integrative recovery team in the Asheville Community Program meets twice weekly to collaborate, communicate, and ensure excellence in whole-person care. The RC works closely with reach residents weekly and with their family or chosen family regularly to ensure everyone is on the same page regarding the person’s “Dream Statement”, short-term goals, and therapeutic support preferences. The Recovery Coaches support residents in day-to-day activities, encouraging each person to feel confident in engaging with the greater Asheville community through employment, volunteering, or education, and in developing friendships and dating, so they can create their enriching community beyond CooperRiis.
