Intensive Day Treatment: Offers active-treatment day programs that aim to stabilize the client and avert hospitalization or reduce its length. It is also an alternative to inpatient hospitalization. Programs offer a comprehensive, integrated schedule of treatment approaches that serve individuals significantly impaired by psychiatric, emotional, social and behavioral disorders and those with a secondary drug and/or alcohol diagnosis. Specialized programs target younger or older adults and promote wellness and empowerment through a variety of treatment options. Services are available in both English and Spanish. Open Door Clubhouse: A psychosocial rehabilitation day program based on the acclaimed Fountain House in New York City and the first program of its kind in Philadelphia, the Clubhouse empowers its members through daily participation in one of several work units. By taking responsibility for all tasks needed for the Clubhouse to function successfully, members learn valuable work skills; discover and develop their individual strengths, abilities and interests and build confidence enhancing both their work and personal lives. Members choose among clerical, kitchen, horticultural, art, education, transitional employment and independent employment work units. The goal of this program is for members to move from onsite work units to transitional and eventually to getting their own job.
