What is Day Treatment?

Day treatment, also known as Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), is often the level of care that teens will step down into after completing a residential or wilderness program.

Through the use of a variety of therapeutic methods, teens are able to stabilize, begin to understand their addiction and mental health struggles, and heal from them.

We strive to help teens become more like the person they want to be, without using substances to get there.

Partial Hospitalization Program Schedule

In our Day Treatment program, most days begin at around noon and end at around 5:00 p.m.

Group academic and vocational support sessions occur three days a week, with daily support from a licensed and credentialed teacher.

Family therapy sessions occur weekly, and six hours of group and experiential therapy take place every day.

Here is a sample of what a typical day might include:

Individual Therapy
Academic Support
Icon Outdoors
Experiential Activity
Icon Mental Health
Psychiatric Consultations
Family Therapy
Group Therapy
Medication Management

Day Treatment Programs for Youth

Who typically comes to day treatment?

We support teens struggling with substance abuse and mental health disorders who need significant structure to help support stabilization, and have either temporarily left school, are in transition between schools, or looking to finish out of school online or pursue their GED.

For teens who require more structure and support than our outpatient day treatment program can provide, we recommend Cascade Canyon Teen Residential.

This 30-day residential program gives teens a safe and supportive environment in which they can begin to discover who they are without substances, begin confronting underlying mental health disorders and get back on track academically.

Family Involvement

When a teen is struggling with substance abuse or mental health, it doesn’t just affect them, it affects the entire family unit. We believe that it’s important for the entire family to receive support, not just the individual struggling with substance abuse. Clients will be seen on a bi-weekly basis for family therapy sessions with a licensed therapist to address any family dynamics and provide support to the whole family system.

Benefits of Evidence-Based Therapy

EBTs are scientifically proven therapies that are guided by relevant data. Patient preferences are prioritized, which maximizes their options and adds flexibility to individual treatment plans. Evidence-based therapy is safe and consistent treatment, but most importantly, your recovery is not left up to chance.

Some additional benefits include:

Lasting Results

The American Psychological Association created the policies for EBT using the best research available. Their studies have shown that these therapy treatments work due to the combination of clinical training and science.

Highest Quality Treatment

Our licensed clinical staff is trained in therapy treatments that are proven to be effective. This means they had to learn and follow certain guidelines for how they provide care.

Clinically Effective & Cost Effective

Since these kinds of treatments are scientifically proven to be effective, the chances of relapse are less likely. This means you’ll be able to save more money in the long run.

More Accountability for Therapists

EBT requires specialized training in the different kinds of therapies. Treatment options aren’t based on the therapist’s mood, they are backed by training and scientific results.

The Continuum of Care

Care for wherever you are in your journey.

Access a full range of treatments for mental health and substance use disorders. Whether you need a safe sober living community, inpatient care, or outpatient therapy, we have a program to help.
