What Your Adolescent Will Learn in Day Treatment

Raising adolescents can be a challenge for any parent at times. When an adolescent has a conduct disorder or mental health disorder, parents can be left feeling exhausted, helpless, and overwhelmed. At Beyond Healthcare, we offer day treatment programs for adolescents that are held after school or during the day on school breaks. Adolescents and teens who struggle with mental health or behavioral issues greatly benefit from our day treatment program’s structure and therapeutic environment. If your adolescent or teen is struggling with behavioral or mental health issues, reach out to the team at Beyond Healthcare today to learn about the benefits of our day treatment programs. Use our online form or call 833.698.0453.

Who Benefits from Day Treatment for Adolescents?

In most cases, mental health professionals try to limit labeling adolescents with a mental health or conduct disorder diagnosis as much as possible to avoid the stigmas attached to such labels. Many parents struggle with having their adolescent “labeled” for the same fear of these stigmas. However, having a proper diagnosis takes the guesswork out of what is happening with your adolescent and can actually provide a sense of relief. Armed with an accurate diagnosis, you, your adolescent, caregivers, teachers, and family can better understand the issues and become educated about how to best support them.

A day treatment program can be highly beneficial for adolescents and teens who are not making progress with regular outpatient mental health therapy. If you question whether or not a day treatment program is right for your adolescent or teen, consider these factors:

  • Has your adolescent been given a mental health diagnosis?
  • Is your adolescent struggling with activities of daily living?
  • Does your adolescent struggle with peer relationships?
  • When school is not in session, does your adolescent have adequate supervision?
  • Does it seem that medication or weekly therapy is not helping?
  • Can your adolescent benefit from a structured, supportive, therapeutic environment?
  • Has your adolescent been suspended or expelled from school?

It is important to remember that the benefits of a day treatment program will extend beyond your adolescent’s needs. The skills and tools they learn will help them function more effectively at school, at home, and in daily life in general. This, in turn, reduces stress, strengthens relationships, and provides for a better quality of life for all involved.

Aftercare in a Therapeutic Environment

Holistic psychotherapy–sometimes referred to as body-centered psychotherapy, is an integrative therapy that incorporates traditional and non-traditional mental health treatments. Mental health disorders negatively impact all parts of a person, the mind, body, and spirit. The goal of holistic mental health treatment is to treat the individual as a whole, not just their symptoms. In our after school program, adolescents will be encouraged to improve the following skills:

  • Emotion regulation
  • Accountability
  • Teamwork and communication

Holistic therapy employs a range of techniques to help individuals understand their symptoms. Additionally, holistic approaches help foster a greater understanding of the mind-body connection and how it impacts their mental health. With greater self-awareness comes greater insight into thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

Many holistic approaches involve strategies that people can practice and perform independently, outside of the therapeutic environment. Having these resources is particularly helpful in managing triggers that induce stress, anxiety, or mood changes in daily life.
