    Harm Reduction is an alternative to traditional all or nothing approaches to “addiction” treatment. Harm Reduction is based on humane, rational, and evidence based models of therapy. As such, it recognizes that a strict 12 Step or Disease model doesn’t apply meaningfully to all people. It does recognize that we and our sources of unhappiness are complex and involve work, home, significant relationships, emotional experiences including trauma, and our means of coping on a daily basis.
    We are here to help reduce the negative impact of drugs, alcohol, gambling, self injury, and the like on individuals, their families and communities.

    Rotary is made up of three parts: at the heart of Rotary are our clubs, that are supported by Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation.

    Rotary clubs bring together dedicated individuals to exchange ideas, build relationships, and take action.

    Rotary International supports Rotary clubs worldwide by coordinating global programs, campaigns, and initiatives.

    The Rotary Foundation uses generous donations to fund projects by Rotarians and our partners in communities around the world. As a nonprofit, all of the Foundation’s funding comes from voluntary contributions made by Rotarians and friends who share our vision of a better world.

    Together, Rotary clubs, Rotary International, and The Rotary Foundation work to make lasting improvements in our communities and around the world.

    Public Notes

    Our 1.2 million-member organization started with the vision of one man—Paul P. Harris. The Chicago attorney formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on 23 February 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.

    In-Home Physicians has served patients in the comfort & safety of their own homes since 1989.

    Our Mission is to provide compassionate professional healthcare in the home or in an assisted living setting.

    We have been members of the American Academy of Home Care Medicine since our inception in 1989. Our team of caring professionals excels in providing comprehensive in-home care. Our providers have small patient caseloads which assure that the patients’ needs are addressed quickly and competently. We are able to act as a permanent in-home primary provider or a temporary provider to assure smooth transition from a hospital or nursing home.

    In addition, we work collaboratively with ancillary service providers such as skilled nursing agencies, social workers, case managers, discharge planners and other medical professionals. Our patients avoid unnecessary, traumatic and costly transportation to outside physician offices.
