The AMIkids day treatment program provides interventions that allow at-risk or delinquent youth to reside at home while attending daily services to improve academic achievement, vocational achievement, school attendance, and reduce problem behaviors. Services provided address issues both in the home and neighborhood by working with each youth and their family together. Different program settings can include day treatment centers, wilderness camps, home-based family counseling, residential programs for male adolescents, gender-specific programming for female youth, and alternative schools. The programs are small, located near the youth’s home, and operate from 8 am – 6 pm Mondays through Fridays. Average length of stay in program is typically 4 to 6 months.
