Three Legs of the Stool Philosophy

The three-legged stool is how we prioritize, develop and evaluate services for mental health, addiction and recovery. We chose this metaphor to organize our values because three legs are the minimum necessary for a stool to support us when we sit or stand on it to work. The three legs—our core values and principles—inform our approach to supporting and promoting helpful attitudes about and services for mental and emotional suffering and addiction recovery.

Trauma-Informed Care

The Adverse Childhood Experiences Study demonstrates a clear connection between early traumatic experiences and physical, mental, and academic struggles later in life. 

Because of this research, the MNRB of Ashland County strives to embed and integrate trauma-informed care into every aspect of our community. It informs the way we think, act, interact, and conduct business with one another.

Recovery & Resiliency

Resilience will help you overcome serious hardships, and recovery will help you reclaim your sense of self and self-determination as an independent person despite the hardship. We believe the two work hand in hand toward bringing a person to a place of greater personal stability.

Medication Optimization

Medication optimization is a thoughtful, recovery-focused approach to prescribing medications for mental and emotional suffering and addiction to alcohol, tobacco, opiates/ opioids, and other drugs. 

The primary purpose of Medication Optimization is to ensure that people minimize the risks that are associated with medication use.
