Psychiatric Day Treatment Services
Riverside’s Psychiatric Day Treatment Programs help individuals with serious psychiatric conditions remain out of the hospital, thrive in their daily lives, and integrate effectively into their community. We provide a highly structured therapeutic program in a compassionate environment. This combination offers participants a unique opportunity to achieve recovery despite stigma and fear, histories of trauma, comorbid substance use disorders, and other significant clinical challenges.
Our programs offer evidence-based skills training, in CBT, DBT, WRAP, dual diagnosis, health promotion, and symptom management. This training is more effective because participants experience safety and belonging which enable hope and belief in their ability to achieve recovery and wellness. The result is to empower participants, who otherwise would be at enduring risk for hospitalization, to manage their conditions and the demands of daily life, supporting an improved quality of life.
Sadly our Somerville location will be closing on March 18, 2016. We ask that individuals seeking treatment please contact our Wakefield and Newton locations.
We are pleased to share comments from the people we serve:
"It is with tearful and heartfelt gratitude that I write and thank the Saturday staff of the Meeting Place program and The Guidance Center. You will always have my thanks for your kindness to my son and family."
