At SunCloud Health we understand the importance of all of the social determinants of health in improving people’s long term health outcomes.
Now more than ever, employment and financial security for the people we serve is so incredibly important. Beginning August 2020 we will be providing access to Individual Placement and Support (IPS) services for current and past patients.
We know that meaningful work improves health outcomes and that’s why we are thrilled to be offering IPS as we seek to help make an impact in this regard.
Many aspects of contemporary life are optional; however, treatment for a substance addiction or a mood or eating disorder is not one of them. To regain health and achieve recovery, specialized care is required.
That’s why at SunCloud Health, we offer individual, group and family therapy at both the intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization levels. We consistently provide comprehensive, integrated care that render the best health outcomes.
Of late, we have grown increasingly aware that our patients must have meaningful employment and financial security to facilitate sustainable recovery. It is well known that employment inspires heightened self-worth, purpose, dignity and personal value. It gives men and women alike a reason to get out of bed every morning—they feel part of a community. They have responsibilities, and importantly, they are paid for their efforts. Conversely, unemployment often translates into diminished self-esteem as well as an increase in substance abuse and psychiatric disorders. Empty days stretching out endlessly in tandem with economic uncertainty can prove the perfect storm for relapse.
SunCloud will offer patients access to the services of Individual Placement and Support (IPS). This is a model of supported employment for those dealing with mental or addiction issues. It helps people work at regular jobs of their choosing. Mainstream education and technical training are included in order to advance career paths.
A qualified IPS leader will work alongside our clinical staff to help current and former patients find healthy work opportunities. Although the process of locating the right job is not always easy, we believe this will become an important component of our dedicated care.
