Communicare’s Therapeutic Day Treatment Program provides intensive therapeutic services to school-age children/adolescents with serious emotional disturbances enabling them to remain in the least restrictive learning environment.
Communicare currently offers intensive therapeutic day treatment to children within the Oxford School District who exhibit severe emotional and/or behavioral issues. Day Treatment Services provide an alternative to residential treatment or acute psychiatric hospitalization or serve as a transition from these services back into the school environment. Day Treatment Services utilize a behavioral intervention and strengths-based program design, provided in a therapeutic setting within the school environment. Day Treatment Services are based on behavior management principles and include positive feedback, self-esteem building, and social skills training. Based on the needs of the child/adolescent, other services may include skills training in the areas of impulse control, anger management, problem solving, and conflict resolution.
