Extended Day Treatment

Program Description:  EDT is a community-based program that offers a structured, intensive, therapeutic milieu with integrated clinical treatment services. Services are provided year round during non-school hours for an average period of six months. A team of multi-disciplinary staff including psychiatrists, master’s level clinicians, and para-professional direct care staff provide a broad range of treatment services and psycho-social interventions.

Target Population:   A child/adolescent, age 5 to 17 is a candidate for admission to an EDT program if he/she meets the Intermediate Level of Care criteria, as defined in the Connecticut Behavioral Health Partnership’s Guidelines for Making Level of Care Decisions. (See www.ctbhp.com). The child/adolescent must display a moderate level of emotional disturbance and behavioral dyscontrol, that appears to be persistent in nature (e.g. greater than six months). Priority access is afforded to children who have returned home from out-of-home care or are at risk of placement due to mental health issues or emotional disturbance. The intent is to provide the support necessary to the family to maintain the child in his/her own home.
