Our Model of Healing

Harmony Health and Wellness offers an extensive array of services for adolescents and adults in a state-of-the-art environment.

Model of Care - Trauma Informed Care

The foundation of our model of care is based on the principles of Trauma-Informed Care.

Trauma Informed Care is a strengths-based framework that is grounded in an understanding of and responsiveness to the impact of trauma in a person’s life. This model emphasizes physical, psychological and emotional safety for both the providers as well as the survivors. This creates opportunities for survivors to rebuild and reconnect a sense of power and empowerment. Our approach using the Trauma-Informed principles is to engage people who have experienced trauma, recognizing the presence of trauma and finally acknowledge the role trauma has played in their lives.

When we talk about traumas that affect people we are discussing events that are;

  • Sudden, unexpected and extreme
  • Usually involve physical harm or a perceived life threat
  • Persons who experience these events have no control over them

We recognize that certain stages of life make people vulnerable to the effects of trauma including childhood, teens and early twenties. These events effect the individual’s functioning and/or physical, social, emotional or spiritual well being.

The core principles that trauma informed approach incorporates are;

  • Safety – ensuring physical and emotional safety
  • Trustworthiness – using appropriate boundaries and making tasks clear
  • Choice – choice and control for the clients with options
  • Collaboration – working together
  • Empowerment – prioritizing consumer empowerment and skill building

Harmony Health and Wellness also believes that physical health is just as important in the recovery of behavioral health problems. We utilize an “integrated” approach to all our patients. That means we screen, treat and provide medical guidance on the physical problems placing just as much importance on these issues as we do with the behavioral issues.

Our team is comprised of both behavioral health specialist as well as medical specialists. We treat the “whole” person not just “parts”.

Above all Harmony Health and Wellness strong believes in our core values of:

  • Respect: Treating all with dignity.
  • Empathy: Understanding our clients' feelings and perspectives without judgement.
  • Caring: Putting our clients at the center of everything we do.
  • Community: Building strong relationships and supporting the community in which we serve.
  • Timeliness: Delivering quality services with a sense of urgency and importance.

We ensure that these principles are woven through in all our interactions at every level of our organization.
