Day Treatment Programs
Day treatment programs are designed to meet
the needs of children and adolescents with behavioral management
problems relating to Serious Emotional Disturbances. Day treatment
is appropriate for students 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.
Day treatment students are usually struggling
with more 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.
