The CooperRiis at Asheville Recovery Coordinators (RC) works closely with residents individually and with their family or chosen family and leads the resident’s integrated recovery team.  They encourage residents to clarify their dreams and goals and work to break those goals down into achievable steps. In doing so, they communicate with the whole team, including the family, or other external support systems, so that we are all on the same page on how to support a resident in reaching their dream and goals.  The RC also supports a resident in having healthier individualized communication with their family members, educate the family about their loved ones’ mental health challenges, including how they can help and communicate more effectively. Lastly, RC’s guide the resident and family when it comes time for transition to the longer-term recovery program on the Farm Campus in Mill Spring or the  CooperRiis Community Program in Asheville, or to discharge.
