Prevention and Recovery Center for Early Psychosis (PARC)

PARC specializes in treating individuals with early psychosis. This includes individuals (ages 16-30) who are within the first two years of experiencing symptoms of psychosis that led to a decline in functioning or seeking treatment. PARC offers assessments, medication management, and care coordination.

PARC focuses on treatment, education, and research.

  • Treatment - PARC helps clients develop and maintain strong relationships in order to support recovery and prevent relapse and other problems such as substance abuse and unemployment. Multiple treatment approaches are used to complement the use of medication, including psychotherapy, case management services, counseling, education, and crisis intervention.
  • Education - PARC believes it is important to not only educate patients but their families as well. Also, because schizophrenia affects many people, the program maintains a link with other healthcare providers and key community-based professionals as needed to ensure good communication and help create a better understanding of mental illness for individuals outside the mental health field.
  • Research - Because there is a need to learn more about the causes of schizophrenia and related disorders and to develop improved treatments for these illnesses, PARC is invested in working to answer the research questions that will help individuals who are suffering from psychotic disorders.

For referrals to PARC, please contact 630-6046.
