We help those living with a mental health diagnosis live a healthy lifestyle
Goal of attending PROS
What the program is all about
PROS is our longest running program, founded upon our first direct care services that began in 1981. Throughout history, the very foundation of mental health care has changed for those living with a mental health diagnosis. Recovery has been identified as a primary goal for behavioral health care.
The goal of PROS is to assist those living with a mental health diagnosis through recovery aimed at building a bridge to a healthy lifestyle. Each participant is supported by meeting their needs in a coordinated and effective way to aid their recovery process and capabilities.
My attending PROS has changed my life in so many ways. My self-esteem has gone from low to a very comfortable level, and I meet a lot of people. PROS is a place for me to be myself, and I feel like I really fit in here.

The core principles guiding the recovery process
A 2004 National Consensus Conference on Mental Health Recovery convened by SAMHSA, patients, health-care professionals, researchers and others agreed on 10 core principles for recovery.
There are 10 core principles of recovery for people who are both suffering from addiction and with mental health illnesses.
We recognize the importance of daily participation in meaningful engagement activities in the recovery process.
The belief that individuals can attain goals. For individuals suffering from mental health disorders or addiction, the hope is to achieve sobriety or mental well-being.
Many elements contribute to the recovery process. Recovery for one person may include environmental modifications, peer support, and meaningful activity engagement while the process for another person will often look different.
The experience of recovery can be daunting when your support system has not been through the same challenge. Peers are an excellent resource for problem-solving, especially in times of crisis.
The recovery process should always respect an individual's beliefs and cultural background. Services should be culturally grounded in all of its diverse representations and personalized to meet each individual's unique needs.
Family and community members have strengths and a responsibility to support the well-being of those in recovery, as well as the individual having a personal responsibility for their own self-care.
The individual going through recovery is in charge of the process. While they may have a team of health professionals and loved ones, the individual is in command.
Treatment should consider the whole person: mind, body, and soul. Linking these three components in treatment can contribute to an individual's success in recovery.
Meaningful relationships provide the individual with a feel of belonging, emotional support, and encouragement. Family members, peers, providers, faith groups, community members and alike can all create a greater sense of belonging.
The experience of trauma is often a precursor to, or associated with, alcohol and drug use, mental health problems, and related issues. Services and supports should be trauma-informed, such as physical or sexual abuse, domestic violence, war, disaster, and others to foster a safe and trusting environment.
Individuals can be vulnerable during and after the recovery process. Acceptance and appreciation for the people affected by mental health and substance abuse problems are crucial in achieving recovery. There is no place for discrimination.
