Day treatment for youth



Our DAY TREATMENT program provides therapeutic supports to youth who present with social, communication and executive functioning challenges. These challenges may also be known as  ADHD, Oppositional Defiance, Conduct disorder, Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder, Autism, TBI, Anxiety or Depression.

The interventions used by our team will reinforce positive behaviors while reducing self-defeating ideologies and maladaptive responses to environmental stimuli by implementing and teaching socially appropriate coping skills.

Our program’s treatment strategies focus on helping individuals learn to:

Being insight oriented and mindful to aggression/anger; Enhance communication, social and interpersonal skills; Use behaviors that align with personal goals and values; Increase skills related to, impulse control, peer relations, and problem solving; Improve community responsibility, and Improve overall psychological well-being.


What is Therapeutic Day Treatment?


Therapeutic Day Treatment is a clinic-based program designed to successfully address mental health, emotional, and behavioral challenges that create a barrier to effective learning. Crimson Heights functional skills specialist’s facilitate strategic interventions such as emotional recognition, behavioral inhibition, experiential teaching and strength based modalities designed to address disruptive behavior immediately without negatively disrupting their natural environments. Effective interventions improve social dynamics and allow individuals to use socially appropriate replacement behaviors in order to access their needs. 

An immediate intervention by a functional skills specialist gives the individual the best opportunity to redirect mal-adaptive behavior so he/she can return to learning while protecting the learning environment for their peers.


How Does Day Treatment work?


Our therapeutic day treatment program provides experiential opportunities including individual and/or peer based social skills training, behavior management, crisis intervention, family and psycho-educational interventions. Once the youth has been determined to be eligible for Day Treatment, a diagnostic evaluation is conducted, followed by the development of an individualized treatment plan designed to implement therapeutic training before, during and after their regular school hours, as well as in the home and during holiday and summer breaks. 


Who is eligible for Day Treatment?


Therapeutic Day Treatment participants are pre-teens and teens whose serious mental health, behavioral and emotional difficulties have resulted in significant functional impairments in their daily living. These youth are at-risk of removal from their home or school, their ability to handle self-contained or resource classrooms without intensive interventions has been seriously compromised, they have difficulty with interpersonal relationships and require intensive interventions at home and/or in the community.


How is Day Treatment funded?


There are several funding options. Private insurance, Private Pay or Medicaid will fund this service for youth who meet the eligibility criteria for the program.

Where is day treatment offered?


Crimson Height’s day treatment program helps individuals move closer to independence. We partner with accredited academic programs to insure individuals are getting the education required. Crimson Heights day treatment operates Monday through Friday from 9am-6pm.

Do you offer PHP (Partial Hospitalization Program)?


Yes Crimson Heights offers a partial hospitalization program (PHP). PHP is a mental health treatment program that offers intensive therapy and support for individuals who require more structured care than traditional outpatient therapy but do not require full-time hospitalization. PHP is typically provided in a clinical setting, and patients attend daily or several times a week for 6 hours a day.

PHPs can be helpful for pre-teens, adolescents, and young adults with behavioral issues because they offer a highly structured and supportive environment that can help them manage their symptoms and behaviors. PHPs typically offer various services, including individual therapy, group therapy, medication management, and other evidence-based treatments.

In PHPs pre-teens, adolescents, and young adults can learn new coping skills, practice healthy behaviors, and receive support from mental health professionals and peers. PHPs can also provide a safe space for individuals to process their emotions and work through challenging issues, such as trauma or substance abuse.

Overall, PHPs can be an effective treatment option for young adults with behavioral issues because they offer a comprehensive approach to care that addresses both the physical and social-emotional needs of patients. However, it’s important to note that PHPs are not appropriate for everyone, and the level of care needed may vary depending on the individual’s specific needs and circumstances.
