Mobile and Site-Based Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services
POWER offers both mobile and site-based Psychiatric Rehabilitation services. Mobile services are the primary focus with a supplemental focus on site-based, psycho-education classes and groups.

Mobile: Support occurs in the home or the community. Participants in Psychiatric Rehabilitation create both long-term and short-term goals on a Recovery Service Plan (RSP) to gain skills to minimize impairments. The goals on the RSP are the focus of mobile visitation.

Site-Based: Support occurs in the classroom. Each class is twelve weeks long and is related to a Psychiatric Rehabilitation concept. Participants will be permitted to take classes related to the goals they develop on their RSP. Transportation to and from class will be provided.

Note: Transportation is currently available for Carbon County participants. Schuylkill County residents are welcome to attend classes, but would need to find transportation
