Our approach is to provide services to clients in their homes and communities.
Our goal is to stabilize people in their own environments and to help build independence and a sense of purpose.
Our philosophy is that recovery, wellness, and self-sufficiency are possible.
About our name: Olives have a great long history of symbolism in many traditions and cultures: beauty, strength, honor, joy, health, healing wounds and hope. In ancient times the trees were shaken to harvest the olives. Today it is we who must be shaken sometimes, to stir our hearts and minds to change.
For nearly 50 years, Caminar, a nonprofit organization, has been a leader in serving persons with serious mental illness, and their families. Olivos, a division of Caminar, is a proven and innovative private psychiatric and psychosocial program.
Our program utilizes psychosocial rehabilitation and recovery focusing on resisting institutional care - the majority of our work ocurrs in the community and in our client's homes. We help our clients get back into life. We do this by securing opportunities in the community such as employment, school, volunteering, social activities, or activities of daily living. We provide the needed resources to not only secure these opportunities but to assist our clients in keeping them.
Often individuals experiencing mental health symptoms need more than one provider and find it difficult as the communication between providers is minimal or nonexistent. Olivos strives to bridge this communication gap by providing a highly coordinated multidisciplinary team that integrates all of the clients treatment needs into one setting.
Olivos treatment is focused on the empowerment of the individuals we treat, taking a unique and individualized approach to providing care. We also pride ourselves on working to keep families supported and connected through this journey.
Our services are individualized and tailored to the clients and their specific needs. We realize that clients' needs change and shift in intensity and our program is able to make that transition with each client. Our multidisciplinary team offers services to clients 24 hours a day. Our program can provide services as acute as a hospital or residential setting or as minimal as maintenance. We are able to respond to each client's need in a flexible client centered manner.
Olivos approach to care is founded on evidence based practices and utilizes the ACT (Assertive Community Treatment model of care).
