Our Adult Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program (PRP) is a community based service program offered on-Site and off-Site. The program provides adults with structured group activities designed to develop and enhance independent living skills. The program goal is to assist our program participants with transitioning from hospitalization to successfully re-enter the community, and to assist those individuals already in the community with maintaining and enhancing their skills.
