Day Treatment provides a safe, structured, judgment-free place for youth to go after school to work on overcoming some of their current life challenges.
Through a mix of clinical interventions, peer support and positive youth development activities, youth learn ways to manage their behavioral and/or emotional problems, make healthy choices, and build skills that can help them throughout life.
Every week, youth benefit from an array of growth opportunities-- recreational to vocational. Activities may include outdoor adventures, team building games, cooking, and community service such as trips to a farm to work with abused or abandoned animals. The program promotes responsibility and respect.
The Day Treatment program is incentive based. Youth develop and work towards daily and weekly goals to help them to reintegrate successfully into the community. Using a collaborative approach, staff incorporate the family as part of the client youth’s treatment plan.
For many youth, Day Treatment is often a last chance before the court orders placement. The program is also utilized as a step down for youth exiting placement.
Day Treatment happens Monday through Friday, 2:30 - 7pm, during the school year. Summers, 12 - 5pm.
