At SERV we share our experience, support and guidance with children, adults and families as they work to recover from and cope with mental illness, addictions, challenging behaviors, and intellectual and developmental disabilities.
"Recovery: The awakening of hopes and dreams, and the knowledge to reclaim one's power and achieve one's desires by learning to make choices that bring strength rather than harm. Recovery involves living a meaningful life with the capacity to love and be loved." – William B. Anthony
"The five Recovery Concepts are: Hope, Support, Personal Responsibility, Self-Advocacy and Education."
– Mary Ellen Copeland
