PROS is a comprehensive rehabilitative program for adults who have serious mental illness. The goal is to help participants achieve personal levels of satisfaction for employment, education, housing, relationships, and community involvement. PROS is for people who are 18 years and older.
Recovery counselors work with participants to develop an individual recovery plan that aligns with the individual's life goals and objectives. Participants choose which of the 70+ weekly PROS courses are best suited to help them achieve their plan.
Courses and services include wellness self-management, psychiatric care, group and individual psychotherapy, music therapy, basic living skills, community exploration, career and employment planning, relapse prevention, health education, dual disorder treatment, tobacco cessation, gardening and nutrition, art, dance exercise, and many others. Participants appreciate our spacious, attractive setting, complete with an outdoor terrace garden, and computer lab. Breakfast and lunch are provided daily at no cost.
