Day Treatment students live at home while they attend the School at Northeast and receive intensive counseling and clinical support from professional staff at the Student Counseling Center, which is located next to the school. The school is a co-ed special education program serving grades 6-12. This program offers highly individualized, education, job opportunities, work experience (subsidized and unsubsidized). These students have struggled in a traditional public school setting and come to receive the support they need to graduate from high school. Therapeutic services include individual and group counseling, family counseling, comprehensive assessment, case management, transition planning, crisis management, and social and independent living skill building, and are provided to address factors in the students' lives that interfere with their ability to succeed in school and the community.
