Day Star Program-Day Treatment (Partial Hospitalization)
What is Day Treatment?
In order to best serve the youth in Southern Utah, Therapy Associates offers a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) known as‘Day Star’ for adolescents with mental health and substance abuse disorders. These programs may be used as a step up from traditional outpatient therapy or as a step down from inpatient mental health or chemical dependency programs. Many youth in Southern Utah have to travel to Northern Utah or Las Vegas for inpatient help. Day Treatment at Therapy Associates serves as a valuable resource for local youth that need intensive treatment services. Our day treatment program meets for six hours per day, five days per week allowing our clients the flexibility to slowly reintegrate back into their community in the evenings.
