Our adolescent day program is designed to help children ages 12 to 18 with a serious and persistent mental illness. We also help patients experiencing situational distress that require short-term stabilization in a structured, therapeutic environment.
Day therapy is designed to serve patients that:
Have a mental disorder diagnosis and a serious impairment or decrease in function
Have been unsuccessful in less intensive outpatient services
Are not an imminent danger to self or others
Do not require 24-hour supervision
Have the potential to improve their level of function through behavioral, supportive and therapeutic interventions
Are able to tolerate a group therapy setting
The goal of day treatment is to reduce or relieve symptoms, maintain or improve function and help integrate patients back into the community. Care plans are tailored to each individual patient and focus on identifying problems, building adaptive skills, self-management and behavior modification. A combination of educational, process and activity-based therapy groups are used along with developmental behavior therapies.
