Individuals come to our programs because they have serious problems in “living” – and we work for them. We welcome them for “who they are,” and not “who we would like them to be.”
We believe that our clients’ success ultimately depends on their own belief in themselves. We provide comprehensive services that meet peoples’ needs, while encouraging them to access our services when and how they feel comfortable with their full participation. This helps people take charge of their own lives, developing long-lasting self-sufficiency while building trust in themselves and those providing services, in this case our staff.
Everything we do at Victory Programs stems from our Philosophy of Care which requires that all our services are individualized and client-driven, focusing on client strengths, and supporting clients in establishing individualized goals. In order to provide the most effective services, we utilize the evidence-based techniques of Harm Reduction, Trauma-Informed Care, and Motivational Interviewing.
We focus on what a person is doing “well,” knowing that this approach fosters continued effort, progress, and growth. If a client does something that seems to undermine their goals, we don’t scold, we don’t deny them services. We allow them to try again.
Underlying our Philosophy of Care is what we consider to be common sense: No person who is struggling should be asked to do the hardest thing first (whether that’s stopping substance use, addressing mental health issues, or finding permanent housing and a job), on their own, before they are offered the fundamental support they truly need.
