Did you know that September is National Recovery Month? This observance is held every year to promote and support new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, the emergence of a strong and proud recovery community, and the dedication of service providers and community members across the nation who make recovery in all its forms possible.
At Encompass Community Services, we are honored to be a part of our community members' path to better health. Through our whole-person-centered approach to care, we provide tools, resources, and varying levels of care – from residential and outpatient substance use disorder and medicated-assisted treatment to mental health counseling – to meet each individual where they are in their recovery journey, all in an atmosphere of dignity and respect where they can thrive. Throughout the month, we'll be spotlighting several Encompass programs to provide a fuller picture of the range of services we offer. We hope you'll return to learn more!
In this post, we're taking a closer look at one of our longest-running residential programs — Sí Se Puede. Located in the serene foothills of Watsonville, CA, Sí Se Puede is one of the only bilingual and monolingual treatment environments in the nation. The 23-bed residential program was developed and is led by Latino males with lived experience and intentionally prioritizes culturally aware programming that integrates evidence-based practices with the values of the communities we serve.
Our bilingual team of highly skilled, trained and certified clinicians help clients focus on issues surrounding recovery from substance use and co-occurring disorders. Program activities include evidence-based, trauma-informed and cognitive behavioral therapies (CBT), focused individual and group counseling, pro-social life skills building, mindfulness and daily house meetings. Clients are assessed at intake and twice a month during treatment to ensure that they are receiving the care that they need. When a client is ready for a lower intensity of care, the program works diligently to support clients in transitioning into outpatient services.
