ABOUT US:

Riverview Center For Growth Campus and Community-based Day Treatment Programs serve children from Preschool through High School who have serious mental health disorders and behavioral challenges.

These therapeutic and special education programs offer intensive services on Riverview Center For Growth’s Springfield Campus, and in a school-based setting. Depending on the child’s circumstances and individual treatment plan, service may take place in either our small classroom settings at Riverview Center’s Springfield Campus or in community schools.

Our Day Treatment programs are designed for children with a mental health diagnosis who need more support to help them be successful in school and at home than their peers. Most have experienced mental, emotional, or behavioral difficulties for at least a year. We also consider children who have a high risk of developing a long-term emotional disorder or harming themselves or others if they do not receive treatment.

Day treatment services are available for children of all cultural and ethnic backgrounds who live at home, in foster care, with relatives, in blended families, or in other arrangements.

Since family participation is such a crucial part of treatment, families receive a full array of medically appropriate services as identified in their individualized plan of care, including: safety/crisis plans; care coordination; case management; individual, group and family therapy; psychiatric services; skills training; family support services; respite care; and team-driven service coordination planning.

Our Day Treatment programs are not designed for children with moderate intellectual disabilities, moderate to severe forms of autism, or others who would not benefit from the program.
