We provide psychiatric rehabilitation services to adults suffering from severe, persistent mental illness and individuals with co-occurring Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Through patience, encouragement, and reassurance, our staff is committed to giving our clients an opportunity to blossom into strong members of their community. Our clients are shown how to utilize their strengths while focusing on recovery and broadening their sense of wellbeing. We believe true rehabilitation for our clients comes from understanding the five domains of psychiatric rehabilitation (living, learning, socializing, self-maintenance and working).

Psychiatric Rehabilitation for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
We can support individuals with a severe, persistent mental illness and co-occurring ASD. Psychiatric Rehabilitation can help successfully integrate young adults with ASD in the community through skills teaching. As a strengths-based service provider, we collaborate with the individual with ASD and their circle of care to develop a plan. Adult living skills are taught, and natural supports and resources are strengthened.
We focus on helping young adults transition from school to their adult life and pursuits (i.e., college, vocation, volunteer opportunities, etc.,) and helping older adults adapt to their desired community setting to maximize their strengths and functioning.
Program offers several benefits to persons diagnosed with co-occurring Autism including:
- Social skill building (role modeling, boundary education, conversational skills training, social contact, and discrete trial training) and access to support groups.
- Routine day scheduling in the mornings and daily reviews at the end of program to create structure for activities and goals.
- Simulated work environments which allow for members to gain familiarity with work settings and working with others to accomplish job tasks.
- Building of natural and formal support networks.
