49 S. Washington Street, Suite 1, Waynesburg Hours of Operation: Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Psychosocial Rehabilitation is designed to care for individuals with impairing psychiatric disabilities by fostering skills and encouraging self-growth to prevent institutionalization or hospitalization. Our goal is to help clients care for themselves by developing social, vocational and other "living" skills. Such skills include finding ways to help oneself and others independent of professional care. Greene ARC provides local outings where members participate in activities designed to facilitate community integration and the opportunity to practice skills learned in the program.
Psychosocial Rehabilitation services are unique as the program provides opportunities for individuals to learn and practice independent living and social skills, receive emotional support, social support, networking opportunities and additional skills to enhance their recovery.
Adult Day Training

Adult Day Training, or ADT, services consist of supervision, training and support in general areas of self-care, communication, community participation and socialization. Areas of emphasis include; therapeutic activities, fine and gross motor development, mobility, use of community resources and relationship development.
The ADT program addresses community needs with Greene ARC providing day services for individuals with a complex diagnosis. Most of the people who utilize the program are non-ambulatory, non-verbal and medically fragile. These individuals rely on Greene ARC for daily programming that incorporates activities that promote overall wellness including physical range of motion, daily living skills and opportunities to engage in socialization with their peers.

In 2018, Deb was the Greene County recipient of Beacon Health Options' Leadership and Recovery Award.
