Day treatment programs are intended to address the needs of people that have behavioral management disorders relating to advanced emotional turbulences. Day treatment is especially important for people who have failed to succeed in an outpatient setting, but don’t need full-time care. Often the programs are in line with a person’s work, home, and/or studies to enable him/her lead normal lifestyle while offering the support that he/she needs to sustain normal activities in demanding situations. There is a wide range of services and interventions in day treatment programs including group therapy, individual therapy, rehabilitation activities, and family therapy. Day programs may teach life skills such as cooking, employment readiness, social skills, and help participants obtain independence.
Day treatment packages are ideal options for children and families who, despite having a need for thorough therapeutic support, do not require or want a hospital or residential environment. The clients of day treatments require specialized care matched to their condition because they are batting with challenging psychological and emotional issues.
