Outpatient Care for Teens
Our Adolescent Day Treatment Program is for teens age 13 to 17 who are transitioning from inpatient care and need to “step down,” or those that require a higher degree of support than traditional outpatient care offers. Programming is designed to meet the complex needs of adolescents in a secure setting, while allowing them to return home in the evenings, providing flexibility to them and their families. Our ultimate goal for these young individuals is to stabilize their symptoms and promote a return to school and outpatient therapy. The program meets Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The program highlights include:
- Comprehensive individual assessments, including psychiatric, psycho-social, and nursing. The assessments will assist the treatment team in providing referrals to appropriate community resources.
- Treatment teams include a board-certified psychiatrist, a registered nurse, a masters-level counselor or licensed clinical social worker, and a staff member with drug and alcohol experience and/or Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor.
- Daily psychoeducational and group therapy as well as skills training
- Expressive therapies including art, music, and movement therapies
- Medication evaluation, management, and monitoring
- Family sessions
- Academic instruction is provided on-site by certified teachers, in coordination with the home school.
- Psychological testing, where indicated
