It is usual for children, especially teens, to be moody and challenging to deal with at times. However, if mood swings and problematic behaviors are persistent and disruptive to daily functioning, it can indicate a mental health disorder. Whether your child needs a mental health assessment or has already received a diagnosis, day treatment groups can be an integral part of an effective treatment plan.
Beyond Healthcare in Toledo, OH, offers comprehensive outpatient treatment for children and teens aged six to seventeen. Our day treatment programs provide holistic, evidence-based therapies for a wide range of diagnoses in a safe, structured, and nurturing environment. Contact us to discover the benefits of day treatment groups and determine if they suit your child’s needs. Use our confidential online form or call 833.698.0453.
What Happens in Day Mental Health Treatment?
The day treatment program at Beyond Healthcare utilizes group therapy to help your child or teen learn to manage mental health symptoms. Day treatment groups are formed based on age, common diagnoses, and similarities in life experiences. Group therapy is widely recognized as an evidence-based approach to treating a range of mental health and co-occurring disorders. Through therapist-guided day treatment groups, your child or teen will:
- Improve communication skills
- Develop personal accountability
- Foster social skills development
- Decrease social anxiety
- Form a positive support network
- Develop healthy coping skills
- Learn to manage emotions and behaviors
Our day treatment program runs from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm Monday through Friday during the school year. Hours are modified to accommodate school breaks and summer vacation. We generally recommend a minimum enrollment of three days per week.
Is a Day Mental Health Treatment Program Right for Your Child?
The first step of treatment involves a full assessment with our highly-skilled treatment team to determine your child’s needs and which level of care is best suited to those needs. We will help identify your child’s strengths and challenges and develop a treatment plan that reflects these. In addition to day treatment groups, your child’s individualized treatment plan can include:
- Individual therapy
- Family therapy
- Medication management
- Trauma therapy
- Case management services
- Medical and psychiatric care
Because mental health and co-occurring disorders impact your child’s mental, physical, psychological, and spiritual wellbeing, we apply a holistic approach to treatment to address all aspects of their being, not just their symptoms. Beyond Healthcare’s fully licensed treatment team provides comprehensive, compassionate, and effective treatment for a broad range of diagnoses, including:
- Anxiety and depression
- Bipolar disorder
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHA)
- Developmental disorders
- Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD)
- Cutting and self-injurious behaviors
- Substance use and co-occurring disorders
The longer the symptoms of these childhood and adolescent disorders go untreated, the more debilitating and disruptive they become. A day treatment program can provide the extra support your child and family needs.
