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.
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.
