DTAC’s Outpatient Treatment Programs

Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP)

DTAC’s Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) are intensive, multi-disciplinary programs that focus on individuals from ages 5 to 18 struggling with emotional, behavioral, and developmental issues. These 5-day per week school day programs keep children in their homes and communities to prevent more restrictive placements. PHP provides individualized education and utilizes individual, group, and family therapies.

Abuse Resolution and Recovery Treatment Services (ARRTS)

ARRTS addresses traumatic experiences that lead to mood and behavioral disturbances. This trauma tends to include sexual, emotional, and physical abuse. This complex treatment utilizes psychotherapy modalities to keep children in their communities and school programs. The ARRTS program offers individual, group, and family therapy services as part of the treatment course.

Intensive Behavioral Health Services (IBHS)

Our Behavior Health Technician, Behavior Consultation, Mobile Therapy, and ABA staff offer behavioral interventions for our clients and their families to improve their social, emotional, and behavioral issues. Individual, group, and ABA interventions target the strengths of clients to teach them appropriate coping skills. This helps us transfer learned skills and interventions to the client’s natural support systems and also improve overall behavior. These services are provided in homes, schools, and/or a variety of community-based environments.

PRISM Program in Delaware

This collaborative program with the Delaware Division of Youth Rehabilitative Services focuses on treating children and adolescents who exhibit sexual misconduct or who have committed a sexual offense. Clinical teams work with family members to utilize customized treatment plans for the needs of the individual.

Treatment Modalities

DTAC utilizes a clinical approach that integrates recognized behavioral and cognitive therapies. Treatment modalities include weekly individual psychotherapy provided by a mental health professional, daily counseling sessions facilitated by nationally certified treatment specialists, and weekly family therapy sessions. We also provide curriculum-based groups in a rotation based on client needs identified through assessment instruments like the Child and Adolescent Functional Assessment Scale (CAFAS®) and the UCLA PTSD Index for Trauma.

Based on the trauma-related needs of many of our clients, trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) is often utilized in treatment.

Our programs also employ a comprehensive intervention strategy to improve behaviors rooted in proactive responses, rather than a reactionary method. This process and philosophy occur through the following activities:

  • The implementation of a therapeutic community model of treatment advocating a youth-to-youth feedback process supervised by professional staff.
  • A high level of individual involvement between the youth and staff in the areas of cognitive therapy, recreational therapy, and individual and group psychotherapy.
  • The use of natural and logical consequences for irresponsible behavior.
  • The facilitation of techniques via the lecture series of curriculum programs to solve conflict effectively.
  • The progression of individual responsibilities and incentives as incorporated into the phase system.
  • The implementation of structural therapy sessions to deal with therapeutic issues that have fostered resentment, anger, and hurt.
  • Weekly therapeutic task assignments that focus on specific needs according to the clients’ treatment plan.
