The TERROS LADDER program helps people who have mental health and substance abuse challenges.

The TERROS LADDER program serves people who are:
• Having difficulty managing their mental illness and substance abuse symptoms.
• In need of daily structure to help avoid a higher level of care.
• Interested in learning better ways to manage their mental illness.
• Wanting to decrease or stop substance abuse.

The TERROS LADDER program provides a structured, supportive envirorment where the unique needs of people with both mental health and substance abuse challenges can be addressed in a caring and professional setting.

For patients who are hospitalized due to behavioral health issues, TERROS will work with them and the hospital staff to facilitate a smooth transition from in-patient care to the LADDER program.

• We focus on our clients’ strengths.
• We address the needs of people with both mental illness and substance abuse problems, often referred to as a “dual diagnosis” or “co-occurring disorders.”

• We agree with the research that says that people struggling with mental illness and substance abuse can recover if they work hard and remain hopeful. The LADDER program is here to help people recover and manage their symptoms.
