The philosophy of CLM is based on the belief that all of our clients are unique individuals who hold the ability to live successful and fulfilling lives. We understand that recovery from years of abuse requires time. That’s why we help our clients create new support systems, learn to live in a drug or alcohol-free world and gain a true sense of the possibilities the future holds for them.
An ethical approach that supports the individual and family throughout each stage of the substance abuse treatment and recovery process is the foundation of our treatment programs.
CLM is an organization serving the Hispanic client(s). We foster a culture of learning about our community, and families. CLM incorporates cultural values and issues input into programs important to Hispanics by providing services in a familiar and convenient location to overcome barriers of communication. We serve Hispanic and other non-English speaking groups. We welcome walk-in appointments and we meet our clients in their community.
“Culture” refers to a group or community which shares common experiences that shape the way its members understand the world. It includes groups that we are born into, such as race, national origin, gender, class, or religion. It can also include a group we join or become part of.
Culture is a strong part of people’s lives. It influences their views, their values, their humor, their hopes, their loyalties, and their worries and fears. So when you are working with people and building relationships with them, it helps to have some perspective and understanding of their cultures. Our goal is to improve the quality of care for people with behavioral health and substance abuse disorders. We are committed to culture and policies that support people in all the ways they differ. We respect and understand people’s culture, background, and religion. We focus on implementing training programs to improve outcome measures in the quality of care served.
