Children's Day Treatment Services

Day Treatment Services are the most intensive outpatient services available to children/youth with SED. The services must provide an alternative to residential treatment or acute psychiatric hospitalization or serve as a transition from these services. Day Treatment Services are a behavioral intervention and strengths-based program, provided in the context of a therapeutic milieu, which provides primarily school age children/adolescents with serious emotional disturbances the intensity of treatment necessary to enable them to live in the community.  Day Treatment Services are based on behavior management principles and include, at a minimum, positive feedback, self esteem building and social skills training. Additional components are determined by the needs of the participants at a particular site and may include skills training in the areas of impulse control, anger management, problem solving, and/or conflict resolution. 

Children's Day Treatment is available to individuals with Medicaid only.
Medicare, VA, Tricare, most private insurances DO NOT cover these services. These services are available in all of our seven counties: Choctaw, Clay, Noxubee, Lowndes, Oktibbeha, Webster, and Winston.
