The mission of Chestnut Opportunities is to facilitate the overall recovery process. This is accomplished by creating an environment where hope is evident and success is celebrated.

Opportunities' core principles and activities develop empowerment through active involvement in one's own rehabilitation goal setting.

These services support the belief that recovery is possible for everyone and is a process that is strengthened by five essential recovery values.


Opportunities is based on the principles of individual choice and recovery and incorporates the active involvement of each individual in their own rehabilitation.
