I have a question (again) about day treatment. It is my understanding that there are therapuetic day schools (here that appears to be primarily for severe behavior problems at school) with average stays of 2 years. Then, there is the partial hospitalization. Ok, I have done a search and cannot find anything local that lists partial hospitalizations, except for substance abuse or alcoholism. The psychiatric hospital where difficult child was a few weeks ago said they hadn't done any in years. There is a place that lists itself as a day treatment for emotional/behavioral issues for kids with problems in community or transitioning from psychiatric hospital or Residential Treatment Center (RTC). I called to get info and they said it is almost always paid for by local agency after referral from school district- the only way to get in is referral from school district. So, this sounds more like the therapuetic day school with more focus on school related behaviors than on the issues difficult child is currently having, except they said their average stay was 6 mos. What do you think about this place? How can I find out more about it?
