Psychiatry Rehab Program

Program/Treatment Model

 Oasis Health designed the child and adolescent Psychiatry Rehab Program (PRP) to reduce maladaptive behaviors and strengthen and restore specific age appreciate skill sets of each patient.  PRP is outcome focused, employing time-limited intervention strategies that promote independent living skills for the youth. 

Oasis Health integrates PRP into outpatient mental health treatments, as part of the total care package of each youth needing this service.  PRP includes a combination of psycho-education, emotional and behavioral awareness competency, and social skills training. Oasis Health delivers this training to groups or individuals, at our locations or off-site at the youth’s home or familiar community setting. Specifically, PRP treatment model focuses on the reduction of emotional or behavioral problems, and restoration of age-appropriate skills, by:
