Values and Diversity
We are a community that reverences the uniqueness of each person and the personal and spiritual gifts that form us. The worth, dignity, autonomy and dreams of individuals are recognized and respected, as are each individual's rights to self-direction and responsibility for his/her own life. Our goals are continually reformed to match each person's needs and resources; our mission is to help each individual to function as optimal as fully possible. This view supports the treatment process of meeting individuals at the point of their need and walking with them through their pain and suffering to a place of healing and growth and ultimately, a return to the community and ministry of choice. We endeavor to maintain and to develop programs which support an individualized therapeutic approach that is always compassionate, congenial, compatible and respectful of the life call of those whom we serve.
In forming a healing plan for each individual, the staff brings together the various threads in a person's life - faith, family, community, and ministry, then attempts to blend the wisdom of an interdisciplinary team into a rewoven fabric. This collaborative mending is enlivened by valuing the mind, body and spirit of each person involved.
The serene environment at Saint John Vianney Center promotes a sense of security and affords individuals ample opportunity to explore what is known to them as well as what may be yet hidden. We believe that deep healing and growth takes time, yet we attempt to manage our resources as efficiently as possible.
In this way, individual's recovery becomes a sign for all of us of the healing presence of Christ that permeates Saint John Vianney Center.
