A Different Approach
Our medical, clinical and administrative team(s) have developed a model created by David Kelley and the gang at IDEO called Design Thinking. Design thinking is empathy for the people we are trying to serve. This empathetic vision allows us to listen to the needs the individual and respond.
We have designed our programs with a focus on found objects and minimalist design. Beauty offers dignity and a sense of place. We use these principles in designing a recovery plan that is carefully crafted by you and the design team. We approach this as “curators” with works of art. The curator often uses space to connect the past with the present to create a transformative platform for a future authored by you.
The possibility to transform lives by carefully listening to your story and beginning the early work of re-authoring and rewriting a story that opens pathways out of that old, tired wasteland of dislocation and into a preferred future. Imagine a place where that old story can be the foundation for a life defined by you and your recovery. One that you own. Now that seems very, very cool to us.
