Day Treatment Services

Day Treatment Services, through The Queen’s Medical Center, cares for the psychiatrically ill, chemically addicted, or dually diagnosed patients in an outpatient setting. We provide opportunities to stabilize acute psychiatric conditions, resolve crisis situations, establish sobriety, and begin the recovery process while remaining in the community.

“The counselors here empathize and try to understand our individual needs; they actually show sincere concern. Other programs use tough love, thinking it’s the most effective way to rehabilitate addicts. In my opinion, the approach of sincerity broke down any misconceptions I had about treatment. I’d send anyone who really is honest with their addiction problems, and are trying their best to overcome their addiction and associated problems to give Queen’s Day Treatment the opportunity to show that there is a way to becoming a healthy individual once again. Queen’s Day Treatment is definitely ahead of the rest in treatment.”

“I have found that coming to Queen’s Day Treatment has been educational and helpful in treating my substance abuse addiction. It has been inspiring to know that there is hope out there for others in the community as far as drug rehabilitation goes. Treatment has given me the learning skills and coping tools to prevent relapse so that I may not only understand my addiction, but learn how to implement my goals and to have a structured plan on my road to recovery.”
