Description of Service
The Clearfield/Jefferson Fairweather Lodge program provides a safe, healthy, and caring environment, which reinforces the recovery process. The Fairweather Lodge will be part of the plan for managing symptoms and promoting good mental health. Services are available as long as the member wants and needs them. People with psychiatric disabilities increase their community success and raise their social status through employment, volunteerism, and fulfilling civic responsibilities.
Above and beyond economic roles, members need to perceive (and to have) meaningful social roles in both the Lodge and the larger community.
Successful Lodges resemble a healthy family.
In order to progress, people with psychiatric disabilities need to become independent and have personal freedom by making good decisions, with the ultimate goal of becoming completely independent. Similarly, the Lodge as a whole also needs to develop the qualities that lead to total independence. Lodges must utilize a variety of community resources for members to become active in their recovery process.
