Adult Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program

Adult Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program (PRP) at HACS is designed for adults who are 18 years of age and older. This program is designed to teach or restore skills necessary for recovery from mental illness. This program offers group and individual services to participants.
