teensDay Treatment (DT) is a highly structured, school-
based treatment program that provides mental health
and educational services to children in grades 2-12, 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.
