WHAT IS PRP?
PRP stands for Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program, which is more easily described as therapeutic mentoring. This service is therapeutic as we work collaboratively with existing therapists on existing diagnoses.
HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT THAN THERAPY?
PRP offers more interactive activities for clients in the community and in the office setting both individually and in groups. Clients will be working on exhibiting good behavior, making good choices and showing positive social skills, while working on their own individualized goals. Community activities may include going to parks, playgrounds, basketball courts, nature hikes, library and/or the mall. Group activities at the office may include anger management classes, art expression classes, homework groups and fun games/crafts. Client and counselor input on these activities is very important to our monthly schedule.
HOW DOES PRP WORK?
A referral is made by a licensed therapist/psychiatrist and once approved for services, a PRP counselor is assigned. Intake and an Individual Rehabilitation Plan (IRP) is developed with the client and family, and then the fun begins. Counselors meet with clients weekly (at least 4 times a month), rotating visits in the HOME, in the COMMUNITY, and in the OFFICE.
WHO QUALIFIES FOR PRP?
Children ages 5-17 that are working with a therapist and/or psychiatrist and have medical assistance.
