About The Day Treatment Program

The Day Treatment Program at NC Neuropsychiatry is an outpatient program designed to provide a comprehensive and personalized program that addresses the specific medical and therapeutic needs of an individual with acquired brain injury and/or chronic mental illness. The goal of the Day Treatment Program is to assist the individual in improving his or her physical, social, cognitive, and emotional functioning in the home and community. The patient's family or caregiver is an active participant in the treatment process and often benefits from the supportive services provided.

Patients involved in the Day Treatment Program receive intensive treatment several hours a day, two to four times a week in our office, as well as community support in the evenings and weekends. In working with the case manager, all patients have identified personal goals for their treatment.
