day treatment program
Sometimes when a child is ready to leave the behavioral health inpatient unit, he or she isn’t quite ready to adjust back to normal life. That’s where day treatment programs can help smooth the way. Two levels of care in Dayton Children’s day treatment program can help your child transition back to living at home, going to school and interacting with the world.
In the partial hospitalization program, your teen comes to Dayton Children’s instead of school for one to two weeks, integrating psychoeducation and therapy with their school work. This allows for intensive help with avoiding self-harm, increasing recovery and coping skills, and transitioning back to their everyday life.
For teens who can function at school but still need a more intensive focus on recovery, Dayton Children’s offers the intensive outpatient program. For three hours, three days a week, teens attend group therapy to provide recovery skills for the areas that they may still be struggling with.
