Javier

Javier received his first treatments for alcohol abuse in the late 1970s. After many attempts, focusing just on treating his alcohol abuse, Javier, now 49, is celebrating 18 months of sobriety. He was referred into the LAC+USC Camino de Salud Network Care Management program in 2005.

"Javier was really struggling," says Monica Manrique, his care manager. "He had been frequenting the emergency room at LAC+USC Medical Center since 1997, and has made more than 40 visits in those eleven years; 11 in 2005 alone."

"He's come so far, and worked so hard," says Manrique. "We are to the point where I can just give him some basic instructions or information and he is able to take care of the important parts himself. Right now, he's been sober for 18 months and is participating in a vocational rehabilitation program."

Javier has been able to obtain and hold down a part-time job, has received access to free public transportation, is receiving legal aid, and is in the process of acquiring housing.

"He is able to advocate on his behalf during a medical visit, be compliant with his medications, and use community resources appropriately," says Manrique. It's a huge step forward when a patient is in a secure position and can begin taking the lead in directing his own life."

"The program makes a difference in lives, a real difference," Javier says. "I'm still here. A lot of my friends have died along the way, but I've been given a way out."
