CRR recognizes how people of different cultures access care, sustained in treatment and utilize distinct patterns of communication, embrace culturally influenced health beliefs, behavioural codes and problem-solving techniques. CRR has operationalized the concept that cultural beliefs impact health beliefs, help-seeking activities, interactions with healthcare professionals, healthcare practices and health outcomes (including adherence to life-prolonging medication regimens), and this understanding grounds our evidence and practice based clinical model.
At CRR, trained, culturally competent and ethnically indigenous counselors offer health education, holistic risk reduction, prevention interventions, and HIV/AIDS treatment in the client’s native language.
CRR has consistently been licensed in NYS to provide behavioral healthcare treatment and services to individuals who have a mental illness, HIV/AIDS, chemical dependency and developmental disabilities. CRR utilizes its unique position as a minoritygoverned faith-based organization to promote more widespread recognition of how people from different cultures communicate, interpret illness and disease, access care and make use of that recognition to provide and improve treatment for racial and ethnic minorities on Long Island, NY.
We believe that God uses the staff, to accomplish His plans for health through the Center for Rapid Recovery. As servant leaders, each person who is part of our workforce community can make a difference in their vocations. CRR is dedicated to engaging in intercessory prayer on behalf of the local community and nation at large for the healing of communities, families and individuals. We also recognize the intent of the adversary to destroy the work of CRR and we call upon the Holy Spirit to overcome the strategies of the adversary in the lives of our employees, clients, their families, and in the affairs of the nation.
Our desire is to manage our time, resources and talents in a way that models a commitment to excellence and glorifies God.
