Our Day Program provides teens with a full range of therapeutic services, medication management, group therapy, and other treatment methods while still living at home.
We know that no two teens are alike, so we ensure that each child receives an individualized treatment plan based on their specific needs and goals. During the admissions process for our Day Program, we will conduct a thorough assessment of your teen and establish their personalized course of treatment.
Our Day Program is supported by a team of fully-licensed teachers which allows teens to continue their daily activities without compromising their education or treatment.
When you and your teen decide to commit to our program, we’ll develop a transition plan that focuses on personal growth to help them integrate back into everyday life after treatment.
We work closely with you, the school, and any referring healthcare providers to ensure that your child’s education, mental health, and overall needs are met – every step of the way.
The focus of our Day Program is to treat teens with mental health disorders, substance abuse problems, and behavioral and developmental issues. We utilize our specialised clinicians and therapists to provide treatment for your teen that helps them understand their thoughts and feelings. Our program teaches your child a healthy and effective means to navigate their life.
Our program will teach your teen to:
• Nurture a healthier and more productive lifestyle.
• Identify negative and harmful patterns and behavior.
• Deal with life’s challenges.
• Build a support structure and network of peers and mentors.
The program includes one-on-one therapy, psychiatric supervision, group therapy, and a robust educational component so your child can keep up with school work. Because every teen is different, treatment plans may differ. Some are built around mental health and behavioral issues, while others are more focused on the teen’s needs, personality, and unique circumstances.
The comprehensive Day Program at OC Teen Center runs for six hours per day, five days a week.
Once the program has been completed, your child may move into our After School Program.
