Services are provided by a multidisciplinary team of a Child Psychiatrist, Social Workers, Licensed Family Therapists, Master’s Prepared Clinical Case Managers and Mental Health Workers and include individual and group therapies, family therapy, in-home family therapy as indicated, medication management, psychiatric and psychosocial assessments, crisis services, case management and outreach.

SHINE Extended Day Treatment Program
36 Sheffield Street, Waterbury, CT 06704
(203) 596-9724

SHINE Extended Day Treatment (EDT) Program is designed to help children and adolescents (ages 5 to 17) in the Greater Waterbury area. The program provides therapeutic services for up to 6 months, and clients attend 2-5 days/week, Monday-Friday. The program operates 52 weeks per year, with schedules based around the Waterbury public school calendar. 

The program accepts children ages 5-17 who have had difficulties stabilizing in lower levels of care; present with behavioral and emotional problems of moderate severity; and these problems lead to persistent difficulties with peer, sibling, and/or family relationships and their daily functioning.

Our client-centered approach involves the child and caregiver with the formulation of treatment goals and ongoing therapeutic supports. Family and multi-family therapy interventions are scheduled throughout the entire course of treatment. Our office is conveniently located on a city bus route. Transportation services are available for Husky insured clients.
