RECOVERY PROGRAM SOLUTIONS OF VIRGINIA INC

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 7 people are interested

RPSV supports adults with mental health, substance abuse, and homelessness issues in Northern Virginia. RPSV has five centers, located in Annandale, Arlington, Merrifield, Reston, and South County Alexandria. We are in the process of 'spreading the word' about all of the great work being doing at our facilities to help people recover and overcome.

I am seeking to create a small group of excited and ambitious volunteers who want to create and host a series of fun fundraisers/friendsraisers in 2020 in the various communities we work in. This is a chance to show off your skills, or develop new ones while helping people in need!

Having fun while helping people in need...what can be better than that?

Mission Statement

Recovery Program Solutions of Virginia brings new life and a fresh spark to community mental health recovery programs. At RPSV, we are who we serve.This is because Individuals who have recovered from their mental illnesses and substance abuse issues staff RPSV. We are peers from upper management to our valued volunteers. This unique aspect is what opens the door to growth and healing by those served by the organization. When individuals learn that those staffing the centers understand first-hand the challenges they are facing, they thrive in the inclusive, empathetic, nonjudgmental atmosphere.

Description

Recovery Program Solutions of Virginia has registration pending to be a 501-c-3 nonprofit corporation in Virginia.

Jerome Hughes and Lisa Goodwin founded Recovery Program Solutions of Virginia (RPSV) in 2011. The organization was created to meet the unmet needs of adults and seniors with mental health and substance abuse issues in Northern Virginia. RPSV currently serves residents in the Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax/Falls Church, Loudoun County, and Prince William County communities and is actively seeking to expand to other jurisdictions to help even more individuals in need.

RPSV’s programs maximize participant self-determination; promote access to treatment; and focus on decreasing dependence on psychiatric hospitalizations.

Since its inception, RPSV has helped thousands of adults and seniors receive transformative support to help them reach their full potential. The demographics of those RPSV serves includes adults, ages 18-59, and seniors, ages 60+. Two-thirds of RPSV’s clients are over age 50. Its oldest participant is 83.

RPSV meets those it serves "where they are" and provides them with a safe place to address the issues they are facing. It provides peer support and other key services to help individuals live independently.
