Therapeutic Day Treatment Services

Our focus is to provide Therapeutic Day Treatment for students who are having difficulty functioning in their lives, specifically those who demonstrate mental, behavioral, or emotional illness resulting in significant functional impairments in major life activities. We provide services for students that have behavioral and emotional problems that are so severe they cannot be handled in self-contained or resource emotionally disturbed (ED) classrooms without the therapeutic day treatment program during the school day or as a supplement to the school day.
This include students who engage in oppositional behaviors; defiance; poor social skills; aggression; poor interactions with adults; hyperactivity; poor impulse control; low self-esteem and depression.

We provide best practice interventions, such as anger management; social skills training; parents’ training group; individual counseling; family counseling; crisis intervention. Additionally, services include case management; discharge outcome planning; and behavioral modification strategies.

Who is Eligible?

  • Students must be ages 3-18
  • Students must have an IQ of 60 or higher demonstrating the ability to comprehend basic skills taught during the treatment process
  • The student must possess a mental health diagnosis
  • Must demonstrate severe emotional/behavioral difficulties
  • Student requires continuous treatment in order to sustain behavioral or emotional gains
  • Student must be Medicaid eligible.

How It Works
Parents, teachers, school staff, social services, and physicians can make referrals. An assessment must be conducted by the Community Service Board and by a Family and Adolescent Services’ Clinician prior to service initiation.
Every student will have a treatment plan with identified goals and objectives. The plan will be administered by a Qualified Mental Health Professional (QMHP). Every student will benefit from daily group counseling and individual sessions weekly. A QMHP will monitor the student’s behavior throughout the school day.
