Psychosocial Rehabilitation (PSR) – designed to assist individuals to improve their ability to live independently in the areas of living, working, learning and socializing. Rehabilitation counseling, skill-building and psychoeducational interventions are used to meet the goals the individual chooses to work towards.

Family Support and Training (FST) – offers instruction, emotional support and skill-building support to facilitate engagement and active participation of the family in the enrolled individual’s recovery process. CORE staff partner with the individual and the family to create a person-centered/person-directed, recovery-oriented, trauma-informed approach. “Family” is chosen by the enrolled individual and can be provided in group and individual sessions.
