Day Treatment Programs are to meet the needs of designed children and adolescents with behavioral management problems relating to Serious Emotional Disturbances. Day treatment is appropriate for children who have been unable to find success in an outpatient setting, but do not require 24-hour care. Often, programs coordinate with a child's home and/or school to allow the student to continue their normal daily routine, while providing the extra support a child needs to function appropriately in such situations. Day treatment programs offer a range of services including clinical assessment, individual, family, and group therapy, rehabilitation activities, as well as other interventions.
Children in day treatment are usually struggling with difficult emotional and psychological issues, and require a specific standard of care suited to their diagnosis. Day treatment programs are excellent options for families and children in need of intensive therapeutic support, but who do not want or require a residential or hospital environment. Our Day Treatment program runs 12 months a year.
