Frequently Asked Questions

What is PRP?

PRP stands for Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program, also known as therapeutic mentoring. This service involves working collaboratively with existing therapists on existing diagnoses to provide therapeutic activities both in the community and in office settings.

What is Individual Therapy?

Individual therapy involves one-on-one sessions with a trained therapist in a safe, caring, and confidential environment. Clients explore their feelings, beliefs, and behaviors, work through challenging memories, set personal goals, and work towards desired changes. This service is available for adults and children in Washington County.

How is PRP Different from Therapy?

Unlike traditional therapy, PRP offers more interactive and community-based activities. Clients participate in various activities such as park visits, nature hikes, and group sessions, which include anger management classes, art expression, and fun games. The goal is to exhibit good behavior, make good choices, and show positive social skills while working on individualized goals.

What is Family Therapy?

Family therapy helps deepen family connections and provides skills to manage stressful times. The specific treatment plan depends on the family's situation and aims to improve communication and resolve conflicts.

How Does PRP Work?

The process starts with a referral from a licensed therapist or psychiatrist. Once approved, a PRP counselor is assigned to the client. Together with the client and their family, an Individual Rehabilitation Plan (IRP) is developed. Counselors meet with clients weekly (at least four times a month), with visits rotating between home, community, and office settings.

What is Group Therapy?

Use this space to promote the business, its products or its services.

Who Qualifies for PRP?

Children aged 5-17 who are working with a therapist or psychiatrist and have medical assistance qualify for PRP services.

What is Medication Management?

Medication management is an essential component of mental health treatment when clinically necessary. Our board-certified psychiatrists collaborate with clients and therapists to develop comprehensive medication plans. We ensure this service is provided with dignity and respect, offering psycho-education to clients and their families.
