Each day, patients receive three hours of intensive therapeutic programming by a multi-disciplinary treatment team. We follow an eight-week broad topic rotation that is customized to patient age groups. For example, younger patients may work on topics such as anger, attention, impulsivity, listening, and getting along with others. Older patients may work on depression, anxiety, self concept, communication and mood swings.
As summer progress and we near the beginning of the next school year, groups will begin to prepare kids for the significant stressors patients often experience in school by addressing scheduling, time management, school appropriate behavior and more.
