Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Recovery Rehabilitation Program

About us

The Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Recovery Rehabilitation Program (PRRP) is a program which provides intensive residential rehabilitation to veterans suffering from war related stress. The program is intended as a complement to the acute care currently provided to Veterans at Tripler Army Medical Center and long term Outpatient care provided by VA Community Based Outpatient Clinics, Vet Centers, clergy, and private providers.

It is a 8-9 week structured program for veterans, active duty, reserve, and OIF/OEF Soldiers with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Treatment includes comprehensive evaluation, development and practice of new coping skills, integration of traumatic war-related memories, and a variety of educational experiences and group activities.

Veterans requesting admission to the PRRP must be currently active in treatment. They are referred to the program by their care provider. After participation in the program, veterans will return to their current care provider for continuity of care.
