Day Treatment is designed to meet the mental health needs of youth (ages 7 to 18) who are exhibiting severe emotional or behavioral issues at home, in school, or in the community. Our staff work with each child and the child’s family to address problematic behaviors such as defiance, hostility, inattention, hyperactivity, aggression, self-harm, substance abuse, difficulty understanding social cues, problems in school, or the negative affects of traumatic experiences such as physical or sexual abuse. Children and families benefit from a wide range of Day Treatment services including individual and family counseling, intensive group therapy, and case management that is specific to the needs of the child. Our team includes a consulting child psychiatrist, a consulting psychologist, social workers, clinical therapists, a registered nurse and an occupational therapist.
All services are provided at our location in Green Bay, WI.
The Day Treatment program is offered Monday through Friday, year-round. Hours and days of attendance can be flexible based on school schedules, especially as the youth transitions out of the program. The typical length of stay is three to sixth months.
Services are provided in three units in the Green Bay area from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.:
Services for youth and families may include:
Services may also be offered as needed to accommodate the developmental needs of each client. Day Treatment services are paid by private insurance or Medical Assistance. For more information, contact us at 920-433-3372 ext. 100.
Candidates for Day Treatment include youth who have not found success through traditional outpatient therapy or other less intensive treatment alternatives. Youth who are transitioning from a higher level of care, such as inpatient hospitalization or residential treatment, are also candidates for the Day Treatment program.
Day Treatment accepts referrals from parents, schools, social workers and medical professionals. A primary care physician or preferably a psychiatrist must be willing to provide documentation of the child’s need for Day Treatment services.
The Day Treatment program is funded in part by Medical Assistance, private commercial insurance, client fees, third-party payers and Brown County Case Management.
…the overall experience of the program has impacted [my son’s] life through the positive-minded staff and have him moving forward. It is carrying over into school and I believe that the goals from Day Treatment will be met.”
My child connected with all.”
Any provider or parent/guardian can refer a child to Day Treatment. A provider or parent can call 433-3372 ext. 100 or ext. 131 and provide the initial demographic and reason for referral information to the program assistant or program manager. The child can then be added to the wait list or assigned to staff for a full assessment for the program.
That varies depending on a number of factors such as insurance approval and if there is a wait list. Getting into Day Treatment is a process which includes paperwork that must be completed by parents or a guardian and medical providers. Day Treatment staff will facilitate completion of all paperwork that is necessary.
No we do not. Day Treatment concentrates on the emotional and behavioral problems of the child; however, some schools will provide online work or send packets home to help the child stay up to date. This is completed at home outside of Day Treatment hours.
The length of programming varies for every child; however, the typical length of stay is three to six months. Upon admission, children usually begin attending five hours/day for five days/week and gradually transition back to school by slowly reducing their time in the program and increasing time at school. Day Treatment staff help coordinate this process.
Medical Assistance provides transportation through a transportation company. Private insurance does not provide transportation; therefore, the parent is responsible for getting the child back and forth to treatment.
The Day Treatment Program is proud to participate in the ACORN collaboration.
