For individuals with psychiatric and emotional disorders who do not require 24-hour inpatient care, Mirmont Outpatient Center (formerly American Day Treatment Center) is a cost-effective option.

Although it is a day program, Mirmont Outpatient Center provides the structure and intensity that is typical of an inpatient program. The Center's treatment team is led by a board-certified psychiatrist and provides a multifaceted therapeutic experience on a daily basis.

Treatment program

Mirmont Outpatient Center provides structured, personalized, clinically intensive partial hospitalization programs (PHP) and intensive outpatient programs (IOP) for individuals 14 years and above with psychiatric and emotional disorders. The group therapy programs are designed to serve those who need the structure and intensity found in inpatient psychiatric programs but who do not require 24-hour inpatient care.

Each center's office is open from 8:30 am–5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. The PHP programs operates from 9:30 am–3:00 pm, five days per week. The IOP programs operate mornings, afternoons and evenings, four days weekly. Roundtrip van transportation is available for the partial hospitalization programs. Transportation may be available, by arrangement from school to the adolescent intensive outpatient program.

At admission, a series of clinical assessments will be conducted in order to identify specific needs upon which the individualized treatment plan will be based. Length of stay varies based on the individual's needs.
