Our curriculum-based groups help individuals understand their illness, learn coping strategies to manage their symptoms, maximize their ability to live independently, and increase skills to effectively navigate their social environment.

To accomplish these learning objectives, groups run weekday mornings and are designed to address the following topics:

  • Relapse Prevention
  • Relationships/Communication
  • Coping Strategies
  • Stress Reduction
  • Problem Solving
  • Community Integration
  • Self Esteem

Through the group experience, clients have the opportunity to give and receive supportive feedback as they learn ways to overcome challenges together. Clients also share how they are using these skills to improve their daily lives.

PSR staff will work with clients and other treatment providers to develop a comprehensive plan tailored to a participant’s specific needs, with the ultimate goal of learning and practicing skills that enhance their quality of life. Clients will also be educated on community resources that can sustain their recovery after they are discharged from the program.
