PRI provides three treatment tracks. The programs vary in the services offered, frequency of service, session duration, and length of stay. Upon entering any level of care, the client undergoes an assessment of medical necessity, a psychiatric and physical history, and a biopsychosocial assessment. After completing our intake process, the team will work collaboratively to develop an individualized treatment plan to better support the client’s progress throughout treatment. Programs are tailored to the client’s strengths, needs, preferences, and abilities.

MEDICATION-ASSISTED TREATMENT - photo of person dispensing a pill from a bottle


Clients complete a medical assessment with a licensed physician during the intake process and can be prescribed medications, depending on acuity level. PRI provides clients access to a licensed physician for medication-assisted treatment to provide all therapies. PRI will also partner with genetic testing services to become aware of the presence or absence of specific proteins and expression levels over time, driven by external stressors, treatments, and disease state progression. Our program will use this data to facilitate medication management throughout the client’s care with PRI. Medication treatment will employ the use of FDA-approved medications provided in conjunction with counseling and intensive clinical intervention.
