Psychosocial Rehabilitation and Recovery Center

The Phoenix PRRC is an intensive day treatment center that supports Veterans with an acute or chronic mental health diagnosis, such as PTSD, depression, bipolar or schizophrenia, that is current resulting in significant impairment in daily activities and functioning.

The PRRC team partners with Veterans and assists them in reaching their self-chosen goals by providing support, education, and treatment opportunities meant to foster empowerment, instill hope, validate strengths, teach life skills and facilitate community integration.

PRRC provides classes focused on effective symptom management, improved communication, increased self-esteem and positive coping. Classes include a variety of evidence-based practices that promote recovery, including social skills training, creative arts therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. Services provided include the following: individual recovery planning, mental health education and skills building, wellness and enrichment opportunities, community experiences, peer support, case management and family education.

The mission of the PRRC is to provide a roadmap toward self-empowerment, wellness, and recovery through collaborative, professional and recovery-oriented therapeutic services.
