Help, Hope, and Healing



ReDiscover’s mission is to deliver mental health and substance use disorder services to help individuals and families achieve healthier and more productive lives.

As a result of our successful fundraiser - Take a Bite Out of Stigma: A Culinary Experience - ReDiscover was able to purchase a wheelchair accessible van. The van ensures that our clients with physical disabilities will have transportation to appointments, the local food pantry, library and many other places necessary for them to live independent lives in the community. This van impacts lives!

37,297 people served in prevention, treatment or crisis services

Let’s talk about impact...


This year reflected a period of significant growth, renewed optimism and excitement. Health Care Reform led us to direct our efforts on improving health outcomes, improving access and experiences, and lowering costs. It meant expanding our service array while enhancing existing services in a time of significant change at the national level. We added Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), which included the merger of an opioid treatment program in the fall and the planned opening of a second opioid program in 2016. This is significant, as it signals our effort to address the growing opioid crisis that is permeating our communities. New community outreach teams were created to address the need for assertive treatment for “hard-to-treat” populations. This additional access point, coupled with an increase in awareness surrounding behavioral health, fueled sizable growth for ReDiscover. We served more clients than ever before in 2015 and saw a 31% increase in crisis calls. This furthered the need to expand our successful psychiatric services to include additional clinical teams as well as a new office location in South Kansas City. The year ahead will be a continuation of transformation as we begin the design of the Kansas City Assessment and Triage Center, a 23-hour ambulatory crisis center for individuals presenting to police and hospitals with psychiatric or addiction crises. This center is the first of its kind in Missouri and will prevent individuals from repeatedly cycling through the hospital emergency rooms and tying up hospital resources. It is expected that 6,000 people will be triaged at the center each year. There is much work ahead of us, but we feel we have laid the foundation for success. We will continue to monitor our impact to ensure that our services are comprehensive, accessible and impactful. After all, impact is our goal. And last but not least, none of this would be possible without our donors and supporters. We thank you for supporting our mission and investing in the future of ReDiscover and those we serve. With gratitude, Alan Flory President and CEO

We believe that we can grow people’s sense of resiliency, self-sufficiency and hope for the future by providing quality and compassionate behavioral health care for all.


Raising the Bar on Hope Healthcare Home adds Wellness Center to its offerings In May, ReDiscover unveiled a new Wellness Center located at the Lee’s Summit office. The Wellness Center supports clients who want to begin a journey to better physical health and need a safe place to do so. Clients have access to a treadmill, two recumbent bikes, a stationary bike, dumbbells and medicine balls. The center is a critical component of ReDiscover's Healthcare Home initiative that coordinates both the physical and behavioral health of clients. Clients engaged in Healthcare Home

   Adults living with serious

mental illness die 25 years earlier than the average American, largely due to treatable medical conditions such as diabetes, hypertension or heart disease. For many, their physical health needs have gone unmet until now.


FROM 2014

The Greater Lee’s Summit Healthcare Foundation awarded ReDiscover a $5,000 grant to support the purchase of fitness equipment for the new Wellness Center. A second Wellness Center is scheduled to open in 2016 at ReDiscover’s office in South Kansas City. Funds raised during #GivingTuesday will be used to purchase equipment to support the center.

Broadening Our Impact ReDiscover responds to the growing opioid crisis In order to respond to one of the fastest growing drug epidemics in America, ReDiscover expanded its substance use disorder services to include an opioid treatment facility. The Treatment Options Program (TOP), now located in South Kansas City, Missouri provides medication-assisted treatment for people diagnosed with an opioid use disorder. Opioid medication is a medical treatment that allows people to attend to their daily responsibilities while receiving treatment for their substance use disorder. They are able to return to work, drive without impairment and function normally in society.


clients will be served each day in the Treatment Options Program


Growing Our Footprint New facilities and expansion of services address increasing need ReDiscover is strategically enhancing capacity to serve the ever increasing number of people calling for help by expanding our service array and placing our service offerings where they will have the most impact. In September, the Women’s Substance Use Disorder program officially moved to the newly renovated Linwood Presbyterian Church in Kansas City, Missouri. The facility provides case management and individual and group counseling for women in recovery from substance use disorders as well as an on-site daycare. Additional service expansions are highlighted below.


ReDiscover added a residential home for adults in recovery from substance use disorders. The home, located in Kansas City, Missouri, provides housing for 14 adults and will help address the huge demand for residential beds, particularly for men in our area.

Providers of Adult and Family Services in our South Kansas City location moved to a new facility. The new office is centrally located in South Kansas City providing greater accessibility for clients as well as additional space to serve more clients.

ReDiscover became the service provider at a new apartment building for youth who have aged out of foster care and have a mental illness. Built in Kansas City’s Waldo area, the apartments will provide permanent housing for young adults that might otherwise be homeless. ReDiscover assists the youth with educational and employment opportunities as well as providing a 24-hour on-site case manager. The kitchen and living area of an apartment

ReDiscover gave me an objective view about my illness and helped me cultivate tools that I would be able to use in order to fight it. Alcoholism doesn’t just go away, it’s something I will have to deal with the rest of my life. But now that I know how to deal with it, it’s not so scary anymore, not so daunting and finite.

On With Life...


For many, the onset of mental illness occurs during late adolescence and early adulthood. For Ben, a creative, gentle soul who loved to draw and write poetry - symptoms began in his twenties. His family quickly took him to a hospital where he was diagnosed with schizophrenia and subsequently put on medication. Unfortunately, this was only the beginning of Ben’s downward spiral, in part brought on by the stigma surrounding mental illness.

I learned there is a difference between loving yourself and caring about yourself.

Ben’s family did not understand mental illness, and purposely or not, shunned him. He found himself unable to keep a job, and with little family support Ben became homeless. He adopted a vagabond lifestyle, hoping to find someone… anyone, who would understand him. His years of wandering took him to four different states and countless homeless shelters until finally Ben hit rock bottom. He was having suicidal thoughts when he received news that would save his life. He had a son. Armed with the belief that his son needed him, Ben made his way back to Kansas City where he found the stigma surrounding mental illness still created a barrier between him and his parents. Unable to live at home, an aunt helped Ben find housing and connected him to ReDiscover. At that point Ben weighed over 300 pounds, had sleep apnea and was pre-diabetic. He was sleeping all day and was depressed. Ben began attending group and individual counseling at ReDiscover. Staff also encouraged him to improve his physical health. Ben began going to the gym with ReDiscover wellness coaches who educated him on healthy eating. “ReDiscover helped me get out of my shell and gave me a home. They taught me that it’s not always about self, it’s about making connections with people,” Ben says. Two years later, Ben has a stable place to live, is attending college to become a graphic designer and is working on his relationship with his son. He has lost 100 pounds and is in good physical health. The future looks bright and Ben says his parents are proud of him. One of the most important life lessons Ben learned while at ReDiscover is, “There is a difference between loving yourself and caring about yourself. Brushing your teeth, combing your hair - those are things you do because you actually care about yourself.” Ben wants others that are suffering to know that they are not alone. He says, “Do the best that you can, but you have to care about yourself.”

ReDiscover experienced unprecedented growth in facilities, programs, clinical staff and persons served this year. While this growth increased expenses, it strategically positioned ReDiscover to meet the demand for increased and additional services in 2016. On the revenue side, market performance impacted ReDiscover’s investment portfolio, returning smaller market returns than anticipated. Growth and change are requisite in today's healthcare environment to take advantage of new developments in treatment, funding and regulations. ReDiscover will continue to develop sound solutions that will ensure financial strength while delivering quality programs in 2016.
