Life Treatment Centers (LTC) believes that “Where there’s life, there’s hope.” – Publius Terentius Afer and Stephen Hawking.
LTC respects the ability of people to live their own lives, to lead their own development of goals and objectives, and to make their own choices. As such we believe in working with the client to identify their needs. This means formulating with the client their goals for treatment and helping to facilitate change.
- No one is refused treatment due to the ability to pay.
- The plan of service or support for persons receiving services shall be developed through a person-centered planning process.
- The plan is to be based on the expressed needs and desires of the persons served and their abilities, capabilities and the supports necessary to reach their goals.
- Services and supports are to be provided in environments that promote maximum independence, community inclusion and quality of life.
- The process will fully explore the individual’s and family’s desires with respect to lifestyle decisions and hopes and dreams for the future.
- The process will encourage, support and enable choice, control, independence and community integration.
- The process will consider issues and concerns about the person’s health, welfare and safety.
The primary principles on which our treatment and housing programs are based are the twelve steps of Alcoholic Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA), but LTC does not represent itself as being linked to them in any organized way. LTC encourages participation in these programs as part of the recovery plan and encourages each person served to choose a sponsor from AA/NA.
LTC believes that it is important that the persons served and everyone involved in the recovery process are treated with respect and dignity. Thus, all employees, contractors, volunteers, and students will be responsible to abide by LTC’s code of ethics.
Persons who approach LTC for services come from diverse cultures, ethnicities, religious backgrounds, and socioeconomic backgrounds and experiences. It is the intent of LTC to make sure that each person served feels included in the environment and surroundings of all the programs and facilities. To that end, LTC makes every effort to be as reflective as possible of the diverse population of those we serve in decoration, staffing, food services, entertainment, and all other aspects of agency life.
