We are pleased to announce that Horizon House's Wellness Alliance achieved their GoLive in Philadelphia today!  The red ribbon on the peer run Decision Support Center was officially cut and Staff/members of the CIRC program (Community Integrated Recovery Centers) began using the CommonGround web application.  Members will now be supported in completing their CommonGround Health Reports in preparation for their psychiatric medication appointments, and developing Shared Decisions with their prescribers.  Also, members and staff will have access to over 1,000 Recovery based resources in the CommonGround library!

With support from the Department of Behavioral Health in Philadelphia (, CommonGround Specialist trainees, Marcie Cole, Steven Burkitt, Amra Handline, and Kathy Aikens did a wonderful job leading the implementation. Wellness Alliance is the first of several planned CommonGround sites in Philadelphia, and the first CIRC program to use CommonGround in the country. Congratulations to Wellness Alliance!
