PSYCHIATRIC REHABILITATION SERVICES (PRS)

PRS is a community-based program that uses a comprehensive, recovery oriented approach that integrates treatment, support, and rehabilitation. Our primary goal is to assist individuals with psychiatric disabilities achieve successes that lead to enhanced independence and self-sufficiency. This process that emphasizes learning and skill building is divided into two categories: Community Support Program (CSP) and the Recovery Pathway (RP) teams.

CSP clients require a more intense level of service.

RP clients receive less intensive/step-down rehabilitation services.

Services provided to both teams include: connecting clients with resources in the community, developing satisfying relationships, and becoming more self-sufficient.

Other services provided by the Recovery Specialists in this program are money management education, as well as teaching clients to fill out their own paperwork to maintain their benefits.

Recovery Specialists advocate for clients to ensure that they are receiving the best possible care, as well as assisting clients in maintaining their housing and increasing self-sufficiency.

All clients in the program will identify goals that they wish to work on with a Recovery Specialist in order to develop their own plan of care with a main emphasis on promoting individual decision making.

While in this program, clients are encouraged to attend various therapeutic groups that are provided by the Recovery Specialists and Clinicians within the agency.
