Lowenstein House, Inc.

It all begins with HOPE...

At Lowenstein House, we know that HOPE, the belief that challenges and conditions related to one's mental illness, can be overcome and is the foundation of recovery.  A person’s recovery is built on his or her strengths, talents, coping abilities, resources, and inherent values.  It is holistic, addresses the whole person and their community, and is supported by peers, friends, and family members.

The process of recovery is highly personal and occurs via many pathways. It may include clinical treatment, medications, faith-based approaches, peer support, family support, self-care, and other approaches.  Recovery is characterized by continual growth and improvement in one’s health and wellness that may involve setbacks.  Because setbacks are a natural part of life, resilience becomes a key component of recovery.

Through a comprehensive array of social, vocational, support and educational activities, Lowenstein House helps individuals start on their path towards wellness and recovery.

As established by SAMHSA (the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration), Lowenstein House subscribes to and is committed to helping its members recover by focusing on four critical areas essential to mental health recovery:

  1. Health — overcoming or managing one’s disease(s) or symptoms and making informed, healthy choices that support physical and emotional well-being
  2. Home — having a stable and safe place to live
  3. Purpose — promoting and conducting meaningful daily activities, such as a job, school, volunteerism, family caretaking, creative endeavors and other resources to participate in society
  4. Community — having relationships and social networks that provide support, friendship, love, and hope

CHOOSE     to be well.
