Adult Day Treatment
Adult Day Treatment (DT), available at our St. Cloud and Buffalo sites, serves adults with a primary diagnosis of serious or serious and persistent mental illness. Recipients may also have co-occurring chemical use diagnoses and/or brain injury. Treatment is provided by a multi-disciplinary team of mental health professionals and practitioners under the guidance of a qualified clinical supervisor. The goals of Day Treatment are to reduce or relieve the effects of mental illness and provide training to enable recipients to live in the community with improved functioning at work and at school as well as in social relationships. Day Treatment uses therapeutic interventions which include:
~Mind and body integration strategies
~Illness management and recovery
~Integrated co-occurring diagnoses strategies
~Social skills education and practice
~Individualized treatment planning
Weekend Windup (WWU)
WWU is a social recreational program hosted by the St. Cloud Adult Day Treatment Program which provides fun opportunities to build and practice social skills both on-site and in the community. WWU is intended for current or past DT individuals or who have a CMMHC provider who refers them.
Always Mindful of Recovery (AMORE)
Offered by our DT staff, AMORE is outpatient group therapy for people who are phasing out of the Adult Day Treatment Program. AMORE is also for people who may not have been in DT but might benefit from a group format along with individual therapy.
