Partial Day Treatment Program
When your child needs mental health treatment, Belmont Pines Hospital offers an Intensive Day Treatment Program to provide support and structure. Families can find the program helpful when a child or teen’s behavioral issues are too difficult to manage in a routine counseling session. This program can help with the transition from inpatient to outpatient treatment making a smooth return to home and school environments, and minimizing the need for future hospitalizations.
The Day Treatment program offers intensive evaluation, diagnosis and mental health treatment for many different mental health disorders. School-age children and adolescents, ages 8-18, are treated in separate age groups by professionals who specialize in trauma-informed care.
Program activities include:
- therapeutic groups, individual and family therapy lead by licensed practitioners
- self-esteem building and team-building activities
- problem solving and coping strategies
- medical services by a child psychiatrist and registered nurse
The multidisciplinary treatment team consists of licensed therapists, bachelor group specialists, registered nurses, qualified mental health specialists and a child psychiatrist. The team keeps track of the patient’s progress, determines the length-of-stay and recommends an appropriate aftercare plan. The psychiatrist supervises treatment that may include medication management if necessary. Our goal is to ensure high-quality services by coordinating treatment with the family and community professionals.
