Our team of experts can support you in all areas of life

The Continuing Day Treatment (CDT) program at Phelps Hospital is an outpatient mental treatment program for people 18 years and older who are coping with mental illness. Our mission is to help you manage your symptoms so you can identify the best living, learning, working, and social environment for you. The Phelps team will help you plan for the future so you can succeed outside of a hospital setting.

Our compassionate staff will support you throughout your treatment journey

There are a variety of support options offered during the day to help you learn and apply new skills to your everyday life. We also provide community meetings, morning groups, and a catered lunch, twice weekly. Part of your individualized treatment includes appointments with your primary therapist or the program psychiatrist, who will prescribe your medication (if needed).

On average, CDT usually lasts six months or longer. At least every three months, you and your primary therapist will review your treatment goals and objectives. This will help us plan the steps to get you ready for discharge and the rest of your life.

Getting better information

The Phelps CDT program works with other hospital and community resources to provide the support you need. Resources might include inpatient psychiatry, case management, visiting nurse services, housing resources, job training programs, referrals to the mental health legal system, and other services to help you achieve your treatment goals. We also prioritize your safety and when possible, try to minimize the need for re-hospitalization.
