Recovery Services

Who Do We Serve?

Park Center serves persons (ages 18 and over) who have mental illness and substance use disorders and those experiencing literal homelessness. All persons served are low-income and live in Park Center housing, boarding homes, shelters or on the streets.

What Types of Programs Do We Offer?

Park Center has three locations in Nashville and offers the following programs:

  • Co-Occurring Services
  • Emerging Adults Services
  • Homeless Outreach Services
  • Psychiatric Rehabilitation
  • Residential Services
  • Supported Employment

Highly Qualified Staff

Park Center currently has 16 Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioners (CPRP) on staff, more than any other mental health agency in Tennessee.

Why is this important? This certification is important as it assures our members that Park Center staff are highly trained in the core principles of recovery - that all members should be treated with respect and should receive services that focus on their strengths. These recovery principles are at the forefront of all Park Center programs.
