Philosophy Statement


Addiction is a health condition that is treatable much like any other medical illness. At Credo Community Center, we provide Integrated treatment that addresses both substance use and mental health needs and coordinate primary health care services by referral. We provide a full continuum of care and services, which include individual, group and family outpatient services, three different levels of residential care, care management, referral and engagement to and from other care providers, and medication. This medication is used to treat substance use disorders, including opioid use, mental health, and nicotine replacement therapy. Credo employs skilled medical providers, clinicians, care managers, peers and support staff to provide services at multiple Credo locations and in the community. This diverse team of professionals helps guide programming and services to the individuals that we serve.

We take great pride in the work that we do with clients and the community at large. We follow strength-based models of care which recognize each clients’ unique strengths and needs and can inspire a person to realize their self-worth. We are dedicated to implementing evidence-based practices that acknowledge the client’s readiness for change and what is individually important to them. We welcome and encourage the collaboration with family members and other community providers to ensure the most effective treatment experience for each client.

Credo employees are the backbone of the agency and are treated with the same level of dignity and respect as clients. Credo employees are role models for one another and all individuals receiving services and supports form the agency. Credo employees are individuals of integrity and have a great deal of pride in the work that they do, provide the highest standards of informed care and are committed to promoting change. The hard work and dedication of Credo employees is a proven pride and pillar for this community.
