A long term recovery solution

For many of who live with mental illness and/or substance abuse, solutions are often spotty. "I can get the medication I need, but not the therapy". "I can only qualify for drug rehabilitation if I am arrested". People who live with mental illness and/or substance abuse often find themselves in a vicious cycle, feeling like they are taking one step forward but two steps back.

At Pavilion, once you become a member you are a member for life. That means while you are rotating in and out of all kinds of service trying to get the help you need, you never rotate in and out of Pavilion. We will always be there, trying to help you find the next step forward in your life.

We can put you to work your very first day with us

All of us want to feel a part of our world. One of the things mental illness and/or substance does to a person is isolate him or her from the people they love. The stigma in our society associated with mental illness and substance abuse further drives people away from their families, their churches, their co-workers, and so on. Once isolated, it is hard to get back.

At Pavilion,we understand this and that is why we promise that the first day someone walks in and seeks help, we can put them to work, regardless of life situation. The day to day operation of Pavilion is ran by members so that there is always a job to do. We also help people find employment, finish their education, find housing, get medical help, figure out benefits, and grow in the skills needed for success. All of this is done in the context of a community of people who are recovering and can understand what someone else is going through in their life.
