Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program
Living Life in Recovery from Mental Health Disorders
The Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program at RIMS offers structured activities both–on-site and off-site—in the community. With these programs, our coordinators can assist people in achieving their recovery goals.
RIMS Rehabilitation Coordinators work one-on-one to develop and monitor plans based on individual interests, goals, strengths and needs. Through the program, we offer activities and group sessions on:
- Managing medications
- Understanding mental health and self-advocacy
- Recognizing and managing signs of stress
- Navigating public assistance programs
- Addressing health conditions and promoting wellness
- Improving communication and social skills
- Managing personal finances
- Preparing for the world of work
- Mental Illness and Substance Use
People with mental illness often become involved in substance use. RIMS’ rehabilitation program is unique in offering supportive classes when this occurs. You will learn to prevent relapses — and gain skills in recovery, coping and changing negative behaviors. Nearly everyone needs help in this regard, so you should feel good that you’re taking control of your situation. In fact, we consider this aspect of our program to be critical to the recovery process.
Through these support programs, you can thrive in your everyday life. You’ll learn the skills and habits that make it possible.

Our RIMS staff is available to educate, advocate, and offer support in helping children and teens become independent, productive members of the community. We also help kids put their new skills into practice in the community, with the help of local business leaders.
In our program, we focus on four areas:

- Social and Community

Kids participate in classes and weekly on-site activities. They also take part in off-site, community-based applications of skills, Monday through Friday. Transportation is provided.
