A Well Rounded Program For Success

Lotus' focus on case management means simply that we help clients get services they need to accelerate their recovery and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

We understand the importance of family, social networks, and community on our resident's healing.

Our case managers advocate for all kinds of assistance, including helping residents work treatment plan goals and find a sponsor and support group meetings that fit the client’s needs.

We work on resume creation and assist residents with job applications and interview preparation, serving as a point of contact for the residents loved ones by helping residents cultivate the life skills necessary for a seamless transition back into society.


We make sure to align services and resources that fit our resident's needs, rather than trying to make our residents fit the services.
