Psychiatric Day Treatment Program Recovery

Psychiatric Day Treatment services are designed to help individuals recover by improving their social skills, level of connectedness to family and the community, and overall level of functionality. They encourage self-advocacy by assisting with integration into the community and by beginning or reestablishing their recovery and rehabilitation process. The service model includes peer led groups and/or peer supports along with a structured and supportive treatment community to help each individual move forward in their journey toward recovery.

About Psychiatric Day Treatment

Day Treatment provides multi-disciplinary intensive care to people with acute and persistent mental illness. Clients served by this program are experiencing an unstable or acute phase of their illness. These clients require more support than can be provided at weekly or biweekly outpatient counseling sessions. The program is strength-based, trauma sensitive and goal driven with treatment focused on reclaiming lost hopes, dreams and capabilities in a supportive and empowering way.
