Support

 

Individual and Family Support

Elevate provides trained counselors for those with family members or friends struggling with substance abuse or an addiction.       

Support Group

Elevate offers a family support group facilitated by a trained professional who provides education to help families understand the disease of addiction, and how best to help their loved one—while reclaiming their own quality of life. Participants share their stories to help and encourage others, while learning coping and communication skills to deal with the effects an addict’s actions can have on others.   They come to understand that they are not to blame for their loved one’s substance abuse and they receive support as they learn to let go of their loved one’s addiction.

Elevate’s Family Education Program is free and open to the public. The program offers a “drop in” approach so you can attend as needed or based upon your schedule.  Group sessions are held every week.

Alcohol and Other Drug Intervention Support

The family plays a central role in the treatment of any health issue, including substance abuse. Sometimes, in an effort to help get their loved one into treatment, families will plan an intervention meeting to convince the substance abuser that they need help. Elevate staff, experienced in facilitating these sessions, is available to assist in preparation and implementation of these sessions. Interventions are a preferred alternative to court-ordered treatment. Please call us for more information.

“We had heard about Elevate’s support group but we didn’t know anyone there so it took a while for us to take that first step and attend a meeting. From the moment we walked in the door and heard the stories, we knew we were in the right place.”

Mental Health Crisis Stabilization

Elevate offers housing options for those in the midst of a substance abuse or mental health crisis.

Calm Harbor – Housing

Calm Harbor is a community-based residential care facility that supports an adult mental health population who have recently experienced a crisis in their life.  These individuals are not in need of ongoing medical care, but do require monitoring and support.  
 
Our state-licensed facility, located in a neighborhood close to shopping and municipal services, has a capacity for eight ambulatory adults.  Our professional staff is equipped to support and monitor our adult clients seven days a week, 24 hours a day, in a safe, home-like atmosphere.  The staff provides daily activities that are appropriate for the unique functioning level of each individual.  Calm Harbor clients are provided with an opportunity to:

•    Develop socialization skills
•    Enhance knowledge of community resources
•    Accelerate the recovery process

Adult Mental Health Services

Through a collaborative effort with Washington County's Human Services Department, Calm Harbor clients receive:

•    Guidance to transition into the community or from inpatient care
•    Assistance with building positive communication skills
•    Support to develop coping skills

Client medications are monitored and their nutrition and daily needs are provided for.

Intoxication Monitoring

Intoxication monitoring services for individuals who do not require medical or nursing intervention are also included in the services provided by Calm Harbor staff.  Should medical intervention be necessary to address detoxification or psychiatric instability, our staff, in conjunction with the Washington County's Crisis Intervention Team, will coordinate the transfer of the client into a hospital or otherwise more appropriate setting.

All Calm Harbor clients are referred to the program by the Acute Care Service Team, a division of Washington County's Human Services Department.

Supportive Independent Living

Elevate also provides independent living support for adults with mental health issues.  It is a goal-focused program that supports clients in an independent living environment.  We work with clients to help them live independently and with a quality of life that they deserve,

Transitional Apartment Program

Sometimes, individuals have a need for permanent housing after a crisis situation has resolved.  In those cases, Elevate offers a transitional apartment program until permanent living arrangements can be found.
