Day Services – Adult programs provide an avenue for individuals to attain daily living skills, social skills, communication skills, self-help skills, and other adaptive skills in order to enhance their overall quality of life. Activities in our treatment programs at our facility are planned based on individual needs, preferences, and interests. Programs are provided at sites located in or near the individual’s community. Our treatment facility has programs that are tailored to fit the needs and desires of each individual. As a component part of this service, each individual completes an individualized, person-centered planning process as described in the Department of Mental Health Record Guide. Formal person-centered planning enhances the planning process by incorporating diverse viewpoints.
Millcreek, a treatment facility in Mississippi, is committed to community inclusion and will provide weekly opportunities to interact with people and environments within the community. These outings occur individually or in groups of no more than three individuals at a time. All participants will be given a choice of the programs to participate in for daily personal development in and out of typical community settings used by individuals who do not have disabilities. Individual outcomes will be set using an ecological system of teaching, which requires personal development to occur in the most natural setting available.
Through the person-centered planning process at our treatment facility, outcomes and programs will be selected by the individual and/or their legal representative for daily and weekly participation which promote our values to encourage and support:
- Community presence
- Community participation
- Societal contributions
The overall goal of our treatment facility’s Day Services – Adult services program is to support the individual so that they can participate in everyday programs with as much independence as possible, enhancing their overall quality of life.
Millcreek, a treatment facility in Mississippi, will provide meals and snacks for all individuals who participate in our Day Services – Adult services program.
