Wellness Compass Program
The SpiritWorks Foundation Wellness Compass is a tool that promotes wellness through positive self-care. The purpose of the Wellness Compass is to help you create and maintain wellness and support your efforts to reach your goals.
Eight Dimensions of Wellness
The Wellness Compass includes the eight dimensions of wellness. They are Physical, Intellectual, Environmental, Emotional, Financial, Social, Spiritual, and Occupational. We place special emphasis on the use of the Wellness Compass for those with mental illness. It is our hope to promote wellness for people with mental illness to include substance use disorders in order to advance the efforts of the SAMHSA 10 X 10 Wellness Campaign. The goal of the 10 X 10 Wellness Campaign is to prevent and reduce mortality by 10 years over the next 10 years.
What Matters Most is a goal setting process that enables participants to determine their individual goals based on their core values. The process includes value clarification, prioritizing needs and wants, and setting the direction for individuals to live on purpose.
The purpose of Recovery Planning is to develop and incorporate wellness tools into a personal management and recovery system. Recovery Planning is designed to decrease and prevent relapse, increase personal empowerment, improve quality of life, assist people in achieving their goals and dreams.
SpiritWorks assists individuals in developing their personal Recovery Plans.
The plan consists of two parts:
Development of daily maintenance plan
Health, recovery, and wellness factors and definitions
SMART and IMPACT goal planning
Gratitude in Action
Women’s Discovery Groups
Groups include women of every race, religion, ideology and sexual preference who seek to commune with other women to expand their definition of Self, to heal from addiction, abuse, racism, sexism, to become more whole, and to develop a passion for all of life. The groups use the healing concepts developed by Charlotte Kasl, Ph.D., as outlined in her book Many Roads, One Journey. Dr. Kasl examines self-esteem, addiction and co-dependency in the context of internalized oppression. Her model is designed to empower women to find their own voices, sources of strength and spirituality. The only requirement for membership is that you be a woman.
SpiritWorks Foundation provides Telephone Recovery Support (TRS), a peer-to-peer recovery support service. TRS offers weekly telephone calls to people in recovery to “check in” and see how they’re doing. People in recovery are given support and encouragement as well as information about community resources, all recovery meeting, 12-step meetings or other supports that may help them maintain their recovery.
TRS helps reduce relapse and enhances the recovery experience for people in recovery.
Calls are made by trained SpiritWorks Foundation volunteers that are, in many instances, in recovery themselves. TRS calls take place at SpiritWorks Foundation’s Recovery Community Center.
TRS calls will be made Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Individuals interested in signing up for this service will need to provide contact information, preferred time and date of support call, location, and if we can leave a message on an answering machine. On average, people receive calls for 15 weeks, often much longer.
This program is designed to help individuals improve their ability to be present in the moment through archery, and learn how mindfulness plays a key role in recovery. We are certified in Level 1 USA Archery and teach about technique and how to have fun in recovery.
