We believe that addressing overall wellness – health, social and economic wellness – is the foundation of making lasting change in the lives of people we serve.
Paired services for lasting success
Avivo is unique. Individuals receive a whole person approach. Our participants experience the greatest success because we pair our services so they are fully supported in achieving their recovery, economic, and family goals.
Depending on each individual’s journey, someone may find most everything they need within Avivo: recovery services with access to housing, career education training opportunities, and help finding a job.
What we don’t have within our walls, we have a vast partners network of community providers, employers, training centers, and health care providers.
Wellness approach for recovery
Avivo is taking steps to be a tobacco-free organization by July of 2018. Studies show that individuals living with serious mental illness and substance abuse disorders die 25 years earlier than the rest of the population. Life is shorter for this population because of modifiable, potentially correctible, conditions like smoking, obesity, and others.
Our treatment and recovery programs also incorporate healthy eating and cooking, mindfulness, movement, and many other wellness-based tools in our approach.
We believe everyone deserves the chance to live well and work well.
