Our Day Treatment Program serves female and male youth between the ages of 13-17 who need structured support to overcome the challenges of addiction and substance abuse, but do not need more intensive support offered in a residential program.
The program runs Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 3:30pm over a four-month period. Youth are encouraged through peer support, individual counseling and group work to find alternative ways to cope with cravings, triggers and personal challenges related to family, peer relationships and education.
Youth not only earn a credit toward their high school diploma, but also develop life skills such as emotion and time-management, self-care and budgeting. As youth learn to cope individually they also learn from their peers and begin to rely on each other for support and accountability.
The program requires parents/guardians to be in regular contact with our staff and to be active participants in monthly progress evaluations with their child. This level of parent/guardian involvement creates an open dialogue with staff and youth about the progress they are all making.
Upon completion of this program youth are invited to participate in Ray of Hope’s Community-Based Treatment Program for continued support.
