DAY TREATMENT SERVICES (DTS)
The Day Treatment Services (DTS) aims to help individuals with serious and persistent mental illnesses to perform the physical, emotional, social, vocational, familial, problem-solving, and intellectual skills needed to live, learn, and work in the community with the least amount of assistance. The social skills curriculum is utilized to enable individuals to learn specific skills that are missing or lacking.
The DTS is staffed and facilitated by a trained treatment/recovery team and consists of on-site and off-site activities aimed at psycho-education. The goal of the program is to support individuals in their recovery process so they can ultimately be successful in a community living setting of their choice or maintain the level of independence that he/she currently enjoys.
Although each individual has unique goals, many of the components and skills to be learned are shared. Therefore, each individual is working on their own personal goals and at the same time benefiting from group interaction, observation and learning from others, and positive and corrective feedback from fellow group members and staff.
The DTS uses the Liberman curriculum which includes topics such as:
Recreation for leisure
Basic conversation skills
Interpersonal problem solving
Friendship and intimacy
There are additional group topics that are not part of the Liberman curriculum but will be offered which include but are not limited to: Illness Management & Recovery (IMR), personal control, arts and crafts, budgeting, nutrition, and pscyhoeducation, etc.

Day Treatment Services:

This is done through therapeutic group work, a primary focus of DTS, whereby the consumers are involved in a variety of activities such as social skills, arts and crafts, personal hygiene, independent living skills, recreational and work activities.
