Day Treatment Program

Hudson Valley




Day Treatment (DT) is a highly structured, school- based treatment program that provides mental health and educational services to children in grades K-12, and those obtaining their high school equivalency with serious emotional and behavioral issues. DT is provided in collaboration with Astor Services for Children & Families, Dutchess BOCES, and local school districts. The DT interdisciplinary team of trained professionals provides a nurturing and supportive environment for children who have difficulty learning in a regular day-to-day school setting. The average length of program stay is between 18 months – 24 months.

Day Treatment students:

The Day Treatment Program is committed to helping our students succeed in school, home and community. Our successes are due to the level of integration of the educational and mental health services within the program.

No one will be denied access to services due to their inability to pay. A discounted/sliding fee schedule is available based on family size and income.

Services Offered:

Intake Criteria:

All children admitted have behavioral and emotional problems that seriously interfere with school, home and community adjustments.


Family members refer children to their district Committees of Special Education (CSE) for assessment. The district CSE reviews and approves all referrals.
