REACH

REACH (Intensive Psychiatric Rehabilitation) is a program that assists adults living with mental illness and co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders in setting and achieving personal goals. Services are intensive and time-limited (up to two years), combining structured class time with individual appointments taking place within the community.

Throughout the two-year period, participants work through five different phases:

  1. Readiness Assessment: Assessing your strengths and growth areas so that we can draw on your strengths and build the skills and supports needed to have a satisfying life.
  2. Readiness Development: Determining what support or skills you need to make the changes you want to make. We deal with fear of failure, fear of change, overcoming barriers, and staying motivated.
  3. Goal Choosing: Defining goal specifics (the people, places, and things that make up your dream) and identifying potential options. This phase ends with the development of a SMART goal.
  4. Goal Achievement: Building the skills you need to achieve your goal (budgeting skills, life skills [cleaning, cooking, laundry], daily living skills [waking up on time, transportation to work/school], etc.).
  5. Goal Keeping: Continued support after your goal is attained to “fine tune” the skills you have learned and provide support if you are struggling to keep your goal.
