We know the path to recovery is unique for everyone, so we partner with individuals as they create and pursue personal goals.
ICS works with people who have experienced mental health, substance use, homelessness and incarceration through multiple Marin County programs, including Support and Treatment After Release (STAR), Odyssey and Hope. Each of these programs operate under the County of Marin Behavioral Health and Recovery Services. Our Community Mental Health services provide additional support and guidance for individuals enrolled in these programs as they create and explore their path to recovery.
Our program focuses on personal recovery goals.
Independent Living Skills
Developing good habits and routines in daily living can positively impact a person's health, mood, relationships and overall happiness. To learn more about these services, visit our Independent Living Skills (ILS) page.
Our specialists work with clients one on one as they identify their path to recovery. We also offer a 16 week class called Moving Forward which encourages individuals to identify their skills, talents, and values.
Volunteering is another way to build a resume, explore vocational interests and develop job references. ICS will assist in locating and applying to volunteer opportunities. We can also provide job coaching for people in volunteer positions.
For school or vocational training, ICS partners with Student Accessibility Services available through any community or state university. ICS provides guidance with choosing a career path, applying to schools and tutoring.
ICS provides services in all aspects of job preparation and job coaching for individuals who are seeking employment. A detailed explanation of these services can be found on the Employment Services page.
Having a criminal record often creates a barrier to employment. The expungement process can be challenging, but ICS will help individuals with expungement petitions and tracking progress.
