Mental Health Day Treatment is a face-to-face group service.  It is intensive, structured, goal-oriented, distinct and identifiable treatment service that utilizes multiple mental health interventions that address the individualized mental health needs of the client. Mental health day treatment services are clinically indicated by assessment with clear admission and discharge criteria. The environment at this level of treatment is highly structured to help the person served develop skills needed to reduce use of emergency rooms, inpatient hospitalizations or other crisis mental health crisis service.

Substance Abuse Treatment is individualized treatment that address the symptoms and underlying causes of the alcohol or other drug use or abuse, as well as the consequences that substance use has on different areas of a person’s life. This includes their ability to socialize, their physical and mental health, and consequences at work, home, school, or with the law.  The type of substance abuse treatment provided by May Dugan Center will depend on the person’s assessed Level of Care.  It may include Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) or Outpatient Individual Counseling.  Case management, urinalysis and after-care/ relapse prevention are also provided.
