Our Concept of Recovery

The use of the word “Recovery” does not usually mean a cure. Rather, it means a kind of re­adaptation to the illness that allows life to go forward in a meaningful way. It is a deeply personal, unique process of changing one’s attitudes, values, feelings, goals, skills and roles. This concept supports a person’s ability to be able to live
a satisfying life even with the limitations caused by the illness. Prestige care team base its recovery concept on Maslow hierarchy of needs.

  • Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is a motivational theory in psychology comprising a five-tier model of human needs, often depicted as hierarchical levels within a pyramid.
  • Needs lower down in the hierarchy must be satisfied before individuals can attend to needs higher up.
  • From the bottom of the hierarchy upwards, the needs are: physiological, safety, love and belonging, esteem, and self-actualization.

Services & Program

Prestiges’ goal is to assist you in your recovery journey by:

  • identifying what level you are on the hierarchy of needs
