Statements from Narrowsburg School bidders
At Changes we encourage our clients to accept responsibility for their recovery, and teach them how to regain their self-confidence, self-esteem and most importantly love and respect themselves once again. Successful treatments of drug addictions/alcoholism are rooted in the immersion of a group/community-based program as well as solid programs administered by a skilled, experienced, and empathetic staff.
In addition to the programs we currently have in Florida, we are implementing a GED prep program so those who want to continue their education can do so; we also work with our clients in regard to job placement, these offerings (and the cost for them) ARE NOT covered by insurance.
In regard to the Affordable Care Act: As of 2014, it has required plans to cover mental health, substance use disorder services and will be required to cover them at parity with medical and surgical benefits. See article http://aspe.hhs.gov/health/reports/2013/mental/rb_mental.pdf
We believe, our programs will provide a facility that offers a seamless continuum of care from the detox level of treatment to the outpatient setting. The owners and staff are committed to working with local non-profit/private drug and alcohol entities, community programs, schools and hospitals to form efficient collaborative efforts. We will be serving the families in our communities that recognize the need for help for their loved ones. Our goal is to enrich the lives of our clients and contribute to awareness of mental health and substance abuse prevention and treatment.
Please join us in trying to fight this battle. Once you save a life, you never want to stop. It’s a wonderful feeling when you give a family back its child, its father, its mother, who might have died without the proper support. You can’t get a better reward than this.
Joan and Robert Buto
