recovery is



we’ve seen it happen for thousands of people for over 40 years. We also know that recovery is dependent on the strength and resilience of individuals, families and communities to improve the health, wellness and quality of life for people working toward recovery. And we know that our team approach to treatment and our partners in the community play an important role in helping us to meet Dale K. Klatzker, Ph.D., President/CEO

the needs of the people we serve.

Within our organization, our dedicated staff members work together in teams to identify and meet our clients’ unique needs. Outside of our organization, we work with our partners in the community not only to ensure that our clients receive exceptional services, but also to create a behavioral health delivery system that shares our recovery-focused philosophy.

At The Providence Center, we are driven to providing high quality, recovery-oriented systems of care, never losing sight of the fact that teamwork and partnerships can only serve to

Located in the heart of Providence, The Providence Center Recovery Apartments provide residential and supportive services to people in recovery from substance use problems. The people who live there work with Providence Center case managers, counselors and employment and education specialists to build a strong foundation for long-term recovery.

Learning to live in recovery takes commitment and support. “For many of our residents, it’s the first time in their lives that they’ve felt safe and part of a community,” says Jim Gillen, clinical coordinator of Recovery Services at The Providence Center. “We work to build our clients’ self-confidence and support them

spends his days volunteering at community meal sites and shelters in Providence. He also runs group meetings at the apartments and provides telephone support for the recovery community. His positive energy is felt by everyone he meets.

“Addiction, hunger and homelessness are very real, ugly truths on the streets of Rhode Island. Trust me, I know—I’ve been there. In order to get off the streets and get your life back, you need support and a strong foundation. I found that at the Recovery Apartments. Jim Gillen runs the program. With his support and the help of my therapists at The Providence Center, I learned how to ‘work’ my recovery by volunteering in the community and helping others to find hope. Recovery coaching has given me an opportunity to give back and helped me stay committed to my recovery.” Joe, a client of The Providence Center, resident of the the Recovery Apartments and recovery coach

“Community service is an important part of the program at The Providence Center Recovery Apartments. We encourage our clients to volunteer in the community. It gives them an opportunity to support their peers and become involved in whatever they are passionate about. Another important part of living in recovery is learning how to take pride in yourself, your home, your daily accomplishments and your friends. Our residents are committed to recovery and to each other.” Jim Gillen,

clinical coordinator of

Recovery Services

“When people struggling with addictions come in for a hot meal, we get to know them and learn when they are open to receive help. That’s when we call on Jim Gillen from The Providence Center. Jim is deeply knowledgeable about addiction services and has a down-to-earth, judgment-free attitude that quickly earns trust. Together, we work to make a positive difference in people’s lives.” The Rev. Mary Margaret Earl,

Children’s Emergency Services Jayden is five years old. His mom is a single mom, and he’s her only child. Jayden is having difficulty dealing with the fact that his dad is not fully involved in his life. When Jayden’s mom receives a call from his daycare telling her that Jayden threatened to harm himself, she rushes to her son’s side. Just two hours later, Travis Hermance, acute care clinician, has completed his evaluation and determined that while Jayden is not in danger of hurting himself, he is screaming for help in a way that is sure to get everyone’s attention.

As a clinician in

Emergency Services at The Providence Center, Travis Hermance responds to crisis situations involving children and adolescents in the Providence area. He receives referrals from parents, daycare centers, community health centers, schools, emergency departments and group homes. “The children referred to me are under a tremendous amount of stress,” says Hermance. “Whether they are the target of bullying or threatening to hurt themselves, it’s my job to identify the seriousness of the situation and make recommendations for their safety and follow-up treatment.” Within hours of receiving a referral, Hermance has completed an initial phone screening and usually has enough information to decide whether or not the child needs to be hospitalized. “If the child needs to be in a safe place or is at risk to hurt himself or others, I will coordinate his transfer to the hospital. Thankfully, that only happens with about 10% of the referrals I receive,” says Hermance. In some cases, an onsite evaluation is necessary. “I often go where the child is to conduct an evaluation,” says Hermance. “I meet with the child and gather information from parents, school administrators, teachers, social workers, student assistance counselors and anyone else who is in a position to offer insight into the child’s life.” Once Hermance has the background information he needs, he is ready to recommend treatment. If the child is stable and Hermance feels outpatient therapy is the best option, he arranges an appointment for the child with a therapist in Child and Family Services at The Providence Center. In severe cases, Hermance suggests The Providence Center’s Partial Hospital Program where, for five days a week, six hours a day, the child will learn to manage his symptoms in a supportive, structured setting. Educating parents about the importance of following through with treatment for children in crisis is an important part of Hermance’s job. “Many times parents are distraught and confused about what treatment or hospitalization might mean for their child. In that case, I work with them to help them understand their child’s illness and the benefits of treatment,” says Hermance. Jayden started kindergarten in September. He is still seeing his counselor and doing very well. He has made great progress and is learning how to deal with the issues he has with his dad. Jayden and his mom are very close.

“Jayden is my gift to the world. I always tell him that he’s my heart and that I cannot live without my heart. I am deeply grateful to The Providence Center for helping me to keep my son— and my heart—safe.” Anika, Jayden’s mom

“When a child makes a comment like, ‘I wish I were dead,’ red flags go off for parents and caregivers. That’s when they call me. It’s my responsibility to determine whether or not the comment was said impulsively or if the child is really serious. At the end of the day, I’m grateful to know that the kids I’ve seen are someplace safe.” Travis Hermance, LICSW acute care clinician at

Children’s Emergency Services

“As teachers of young children, we are privileged to have the opportunity to watch them grow and play a role in their development. We are also in a unique position to notice when they lack the skills they need to succeed, especially in their social and emotional development. When their needs are beyond our expertise, we turn to The Providence Center for help. One child we referred really stands out for me. I walked him to The Providence Center every morning for a year. He’d spend the morning there and return to us in the afternoon. When he was ready to transition back to us for full days, the staff at The Providence Center spent time in his classroom not only helping him with the transition, but also teaching us how to work with him. Working together, we made a difference in that child’s life. That’s what teaching is all about—making a difference one child at a time.” Carol Mahoney,

The Providence Center School High School Team The kids at her high school taunt her and hurt her feelings. Elizabeth has tried to ignore them, but the problem is getting worse. She is angry, confused and doesn’t know how to respond to her so-called “friends.” Elizabeth has been missing a lot of school and her grades have dropped. Her mom is distraught. She feels her daughter would do better in a different environment and turns to the principal for help. When public school officials decide they can no longer address the needs of children like Elizabeth, they turn to The Providence Center School. Licensed by the Department of Education, The Providence Center School offers a unique learning environment for children in grades Pre-K through 12 experiencing acute behavioral and emotional symptoms. The High School Team serves young adults in grades 9 through 12. Small high school classrooms of 8 to 10 help students feel safe and give teachers flexibility in tailoring lessons. “We have students at grade level, below grade level and students who are gifted. Our classes are designed to meet their individual needs,” says Michelle Hayes, High School Team leader.

technology coordinator. “With SMART Boards and SMART Tables, students learn communication, problem solving and critical thinking skills as they work in groups to complete interactive lessons. It’s a great way to make learning fun and exciting.” Family support counselors are important members of the High School Team as they not only support students, but also act as a link between home and school. “If a student needs to talk, he makes an appointment with one of us; or if the family is having difficulty with the child at home, we will make a home visit to help them deal with the situation,” says David Thayer, family support counselor. The speech and language therapist, behavioral specialist and occupational therapist work with teachers and teacher assistants to address each student’s needs in the classroom. “Our speech and language therapist works on communication skills, while our behavioral specialist teaches students how to make healthy, safe choices at school, at home and in the community,” says Hayes. “Most of our students need help with organization skills. That’s where our occupational therapist steps in.” Transitional support is an important part of the program for all students at The Providence Center School, with the ultimate goal of returning them to their community schools. For high school students, additional goals may include working to satisfy graduation requirements, arranging to take the SAT, applying to college or exploring job opportunities. No matter what the goal, the vocational specialist and transition team are there to help. Elizabeth has been a student at The Providence Center School for the past two years. She comes to school regularly, gets good grades and has new friends. As a senior in high school, Elizabeth will be very busy with her portfolio, senior project and the presentation she will make at her

“I feel safe at The Providence Center School. When something is bothering me, I make an appointment with my family counselor. He’s really helped me to learn how to deal with my problems. My teachers have been working with me on completing the graduation requirements for my community school. I’m grateful for the help and support I’ve received at The Providence Center School. The proudest day of my life will be the day I accept my high school diploma.” Elizabeth, a senior at The Providence Center School

“Our students come to us with special needs. We work as a team to address their needs and watch as they change and grow into responsible young adults. When they leave us, we know we’ve worked hard to help them to be successful in their families, communities and schools. What we do is very rewarding. Watching our students as they walk across the stage to accept their high school diplomas is an amazing experience. “

Prisons are overwhelmed with people like Steve who often need treatment, not incarceration. The Providence Center’s Community Diversion Program is designed to give police and other first responders a resource that provides an effective alternative. Brydie Bernardo, coordinator of the Community Diversion Program, works with police, emergency medical technicians and fire fighters to prevent inappropriate incarcerations. She occupies an office at the police substation at Kennedy Plaza, a place where the police are often faced with dealing with people who commit misdemeanors. “Minor offenses may be tied to substance use or mental health problems. That’s where I come in,” says Bernardo. “Rather than make an arrest, the officer will bring the person to me for an intervention. Our goal is to divert people with

“I am no stranger to the Providence jails. I’ve been arrested for misdemeanors more times than I can count. But all that changed the day the police took me to a counselor from The Providence Center who said I needed help, not jail. The Providence Center has given me peace and my life back. I am deeply grateful.” Steve, a client of The Providence Center

“Even though our knowledge of mental illness is limited, as police officers we often face challenges in dealing with this vulnerable population. With assistance from The Providence Center and, in particular, Brydie Bernardo, we have made great strides in understanding the problems people with mental health issues face every day. Without The Providence Center’s help, these people would probably be at the ACI, which is no place for anyone with a mental illness. The program we have in place at Kennedy Plaza works. We are grateful to The Providence Center for making it happen.” Sergeant George Smith, Providence Police Department

“People with mental health and substance use problems are often arrested for misdemeanor crimes associated directly with symptoms of their illnesses. The goal of the Community Diversion Program is to provide law enforcement with a resource other than arrest. We take a preventive approach, which benefits not only the individuals, but also the Providence Police Department, the overburdened legal and corrections systems, and the community as a whole. Our program is designed to take a step toward changing a system that currently ‘warehouses’ people with mental health and substance use problems in prisons and jails.” Brydie Bernardo,

The Engagement and Diversion Team is one of six teams at The Providence Center working with individuals experiencing severe and persistent mental health and/or co-occurring substance use problems. Each team is comprised of psychiatrists, nurses, clinical therapists, case managers and staff specializing in mental health, addictions, education and vocational services. They work to develop and implement a recovery-focused plan of care that will keep the people they serve in the community and out of the hospital. The teams serve clients of all levels of care, but the Engagement and Diversion Team specializes in serving only those clients with the greatest need for intensive services.

flexibility to respond to referrals within 24 hours we act immediately,” says Holly Fitting, associate director of the Community Support Program at The Providence Center. “If clients cannot come to us, we go to them, even if it means an afternoon of searching the streets and homeless shelters.” Once the initial contact is made and the client agrees to treatment, the Engagement and Diversion Team sets to work on a treatment plan. The treatment plan for a client of the Engagement and Diversion Team can be very complex. In addition to providing traditional clinical services aimed at symptom management, specialized staff members work with individuals to locate safe, affordable housing, develop independent living skills, secure and maintain meaningful employment, identify educational opportunities and introduce them to community, therapeutic, social and recreational activities. “We do whatever needs to be done to keep our clients functioning at a level that will keep them in the community,” says Ralph Apici, team manager. “We make medication visits, help them budget their money and take them shopping. If we have to spend an afternoon cleaning a client’s apartment so that he will not be evicted, we do it. We are there for our clients seven days a week.” Idalia is receiving services from The Providence Center’s Engagement and Diversion team. She has shown amazing strength and resilience in recovering from the shocking loss of her husband.

“At The Providence Center, I feel safe and supported. My therapist helped me to find a place to live and a job working in the kitchen at The Providence Center a few days a week. I stopped drinking and started exercising. With the support of my therapist, my family and my faith, I’ve found hope for the future. I’ve always loved to cook. My dream is to study cooking. Thanks to The Providence Center, I have hope that my dream will come true.” Idalia, a client of The Providence Center

“El muerte de mi esposo me dejo con sentimientos solas, triste, ansiosa y deprimida. No pude imaginarme la vida sin el y tome un sobre dosis de mis pastillas varios veces. Mi ansiad fue tan terrible que fue ingresada al hospital. Es cuando yo busque El Providence Center por ayuda. Por El Providence Center, yo sentí segura y apoyada. Mi terapista me ayudo a buscar un lugar donde vivir y un trabajito en la cocina en el Providence Center algunas días por la semana. Yo deje a tomar alcohol y comencé a hacer ejercicio. Con el apoyo de mi terapista, mi familia y mi fe, he encontrado esperanza para el futuro. Siempre me encanté a cocinar. Mi sueño es a estudiar cocina.
