Road to Recovery

Road to recovery direction concept

Road to Recovery (RtR) is an intensive goals-driven day program focused on each person’s needs resulting in the individual being able to take their next steps toward living a satisfying life – outside the program and in a shorter period of time. The program provides useful information and recovery tools such as how to use psychiatric medication effectively, enhancing coping skills, developing a social support system and suggestions for meaningful activities to create a well-balanced lifestyle.

Road to Recovery participants are asked to make an attendance commitment and to fully participate in each program module. Modules include behavioral management, information and discussion about medication and their side effects, reading and comprehension, coping techniques and exercise. The RtR group also goes into the community, visiting museums, parks and other attractions.

Currently, 38 individuals are participating in the Road to Recovery Program. Many of the RtR graduates have moved on to the next step towards their recovery by working or volunteering in the community or pursuing their educational goals.
