Day Treatment


This program serves children ages 5 to 18. It is designed and scheduled to meet the individual needs of children whose behaviors and/or emotional problems interfere with them attending public school. Services are available for up to six hours every weekday, as needed, throughout the calendar year. Children are provided therapeutic services that address social and behavioral problems, anger management and help building skills such as effective communication.  Children also receive group and family therapy; tutoring and home bound schooling from a licensed teacher, therapeutic recreation, and other specialized therapeutic activities. The program's treatment approach is Positive Actions which is the Thoughts-Actions-Feelings Circle where positive thoughts lead to positive actions, positive actions lead to positive feelings about ones self and positive feelings lead to more positive thoughts and behaviors.
