Individuals in treatment need others for their best chances for lasting recovery. As the saying goes, “It takes a village.” Advocating for mental health and addiction awareness and treatment is extremely important to Sovereign Health. Forming alliances helps build a stronger, better and more successful treatment provider – whether it is with individual partners, national organizations, fellow treatment centers, private donors, referents, or current and past patients.
At Sovereign Health, we collaborate with our partners, their families and other organizations who share our commitment to educate the public about mental health and substance abuse, reduce the impact of these conditions on individuals and their families, and improve the lives of our patients. These organizations also share our dedication to improving the lives of people, families and communities affected by mental illnesses, substance abuse and co-occurring disorders.
A strong advocate can reduce the stigma in the mental health industry, help fight laws preventing access to treatment, educate and spread awareness about mental health, and provide financial and emotional support to those individuals in need. Sovereign works closely on multiple levels with organizations, which include the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP), the Partnership for Drug Free Kids, Psychology Today, The Addict’s Mom and more.
