ABOUT US >
Gemeinschaft is a German word meaning “community,” one that is based on direct and personal interactions. Our name highlights the mission and goals of our organization and how we enact them daily. We are a community that is dedicated to maintaining an environment of mutual respect, shared responsibility, and mentorship.
Based on the Therapeutic Community (TC) model, our philosophy is rooted in values such as mutual self-help, peers as role models, and work as therapy. Our primary focus is on life recovery, a holistic approach that helps individuals to gain tools for productive living. We seek to disrupt the destructive cycles of addiction, incarceration, and criminal behavior by providing interventions for individuals in crisis (e.g., recovery from substance abuse or transition from prison to society) as a means to reduce the likelihood of anti-social behavior and criminality.
Therapeutic Interventions at Gemeinschaft come in two primary forms: Group and Individual Counseling, both with accompanying case management. Our curriculum has been years in the making, and has evolved to consist of 96 classes covering 10 key areas of life recovery.
