Day Treatment Program

The William W. Jepson Day Treatment Program (DTP) is an intensive, outpatient psychiatric rehabilitation program. DTP collaborates with individuals recovering from serious mental illness to use their personal strengths, connecting them with supportive community resources, and increasing hope. Our holistic programs have been designed to provide intensive, structured, and recovery-oriented mental health. care.



Program Overview

The Day Treatment Program is divided into several treatment tracks, and participants are assigned a track based on their clinical needs and where they are in their recovery process. Day treatment services are either 3 or 4 days per week and 3 hours per day. We offer groups in both the morning and afternoon. Attendance is important to your recovery, and patients are required to attend all 3 or 4 days per week depending on the track.

While in the program, patients will participate in Psychotherapy Groups, Education/Skills Groups, and other supportive rehab therapies (i.e. occupational therapy, recreational therapy, or wellness)

Our multidisciplinary team is made up of mental health professionals, occupational therapists, and a recreational therapist. Psychiatric services and medication management ARE NOT available in this program, and participants ARE encouraged to continue working with their outpatient therapist and/or psychiatrist. This program does not treat Substance Abuse as a primary diagnosis.
