Just wondering what peoples experiences with day treatment have been like.
I was in day treatment for about a year in two different programs. The first program I was in was for older chronic adults. It was ok… We did some basic skills stuff and did a field trip. The second program I was in was much better though. It was a mix of old and young plus people with substance abuse problems. We did a lot of cognitive, creativity, art, relaxation and writing groups plus we did a car wash, horseback riding and a field trip to an apple farm. We also had a talent show and Halloween party. We even had a large group that would meet outside program and see movies and grab dinner on the weekend. I still have a couple friends I met there 20 years later.
