Casa Esperanza’s integrated care model provides culturally competent, person-centered, trauma-informed evidence based approaches to treating individuals and families with substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. By providing the vital aftercare, the agency works to end the cycle of addiction one family at a time and keeps families in recovery connected.
Casa Esperanza understands the unique cultural nuances regarding stigma as well as the complex institutional discrimination associated with race, ethnicity, addiction, mental illness, homelessness, HIV/AIDs, and other chronic medical conditions. Culture is key in determining a person’s journey and unique pathway in recovery.
The agency focuses on person-centered healthcare that delivers high-quality evidence-based care using proven, culturally competent, grassroots, and recovery-oriented, assertive approaches to recruitment, engagement and retention. All therapeutic interventions, participant activities, meals, literature, and facilities embed cultural norms into their operations and all materials are available in both Spanish and English.
Health Navigators provide counseling and testing in both clinical and non-clinical settings, information about available primary care, counseling, care coordination, peer support and family support services, and address any socioeconomic barriers participants may have. Clients are met “where they are at” both physically and emotionally. They receive frequent one-to-one support in a range of community and care settings, including motivational, relapse prevention, harm reduction counseling, and crisis intervention measures to maintain participant contact and facilitate engagement.
The program offers men an opportunity to learn about their addiction through a phased approach to treatment that builds independence, strengthens resiliency and prevents relapse.
