Discovery Day Treatment is designed for adults struggling with substance abuse and living with major mental illness.
Developed as a bridge from hospitalization or a measure to prevent it, Discovery provides daily structure in a supportive environment where clients are active in the development of their treatment plans. The Discovery team includes social workers, mental health counselors, art and expressive therapists, peer support specialists, and a consulting psychiatrist dedicated to helping clients identify and overcome barriers to recovery. During a minimum of three full days (9:00 AM – 2:30 PM) a week for at least 12 weeks, clients work on relationship building and communication during group activities that focus on emotional regulation, behavioral and cognitive therapy, health, fitness, and routine skills that are important to successful independent living.
