Adolescent Day Treatment Program

Why Day Treatment

Our Day Treatment Program uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to provide mental health and substance abuse services to adolescents ages 12-19 who have a diagnosis of mental health, substance abuse, or a combination of both.

  • Day Treatment is Monday-Friday for a minimum of 8 weeks; however, program length will vary depending on the client’s progress
  • Day Treatment is currently being offered via Telehealth
  • Following the day portion, clients will move to our evening program to continue practicing skills for long term sobriety and behavior management

The Options Approach

Our Day Treatment Program employs a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach designed to enhance the adolescent’s motivation to change. The practitioners, parents, and community professionals work together to support clients in:

  • Understanding their diagnosis
  • Developing and using new coping skills
  • Understanding their family dynamics
  • Developing problem solving
  • Increasing motivation for recovery
  • Abstinence from mood altering chemicals

We specialize in identifying the individualized mental health and/or chemical health needs of the adolescent and their family. Therapists will work in cooperation with the family to develop the support necessary to increase pro-social skills and decrease mental health symptoms and substance abuse.

Sobriety Based Program

Clients are required to maintain sobriety throughout the program. Supervised drug testing is done randomly during the day and evening portion. We understand that being sober is difficult and if an individual is struggling with sobriety we will help develop an individualized relapse prevention plan.

We discourage discussion and behaviors that glorify chemical use and adolescents are closely monitored at all times by qualified staff.


During the school year, clients participate in 2.5 hours of school and will earn credits that can be transferred to the client’s home school.

There is a fully licensed teacher onsite offering Math, English, Science, and History. There is also access to online educational opportunities.

Parenting Skills Program

The Parenting Skills Program is designed to empower parents and guardians who are struggling with adolescents that have challenging behaviors associated with their chemical and/or mental health. The program meets two evenings per week for four consecutive weeks for parents. If your adolescent isn’t actively enrolled in Day Treatment, you are still welcome to attend the program.

I wasn't sure about calling and I'm not so sure I was even serious about trying to get help. For the first time in my life I was pleasantly surprised! The staff at Options did not let me fail and I am SO thankful and SO happy they were committed to my success even though at first I wasn't!
