Psychiatric Recovery Programs

Montgomery County and Prince George’s County, Maryland

What is Psychiatric Recovery?

“Recovery is a process, a way of life, an attitude and a way of approaching the day’s challenges.It is not a perfect linear process.  At times our course is erratic and we falter, slide back, regroup, and start again” Patricia Deegan 1988

Our psychiatric recovery services provide a multi-faceted range of services for individuals with chronic mental illness with or without the complicating problem of alcohol/substance abuse.  Our emphasis is on developmmunication and daily living skills that support each persons’ unique ability to live in the community, to recognize symptoms of potential relapse and to use pre-planned strategies to prevent it and enhance personal independence.

Based on need, clients may attend on a part time or full time basis.

Residential employment services are provided by our sister company the Rock Creek Foundation at 301-586-0900.
