Christian Family Solutions provides child & adolescent day treatment programs and day treatment services within a school setting or at select clinic locations. These services provide a higher level of counseling care for children and teens who have significant behavior and mental health issues and for whom a lower level of care is not effective.
Students attend treatment three/four hours per day, five days a week, and treatment length varies based on the program and location. Our program staff will help children and teens work on things such as impulse control, emotional regulation, communicating their feelings, and healthy ways to cope.
The ARMOR Day Treatment for Teens provides community-based treatment for a variety of mental health issues. (ARMOR stands for Assertive Relationships, Mindful Openness, and Regulation.) These are the results teens can experience when they enroll in the ARMOR program.
Our program is designed for teens who need clinically proven and effective treatment to more successfully manage their depression, anxiety, trauma, or other serious mental health conditions.
Teens in our ARMOR Day Treatment will learn emotion- and behavior-regulation strategies, skills to build and strengthen relationships, and techniques for the management of psychologically distressing situations. For clients who so choose, our program integrates evidence-based counseling techniques with a Christian perspective to support clients both emotionally and spiritually.
ARMOR is appropriate for adolescents 14-17 struggling with anxiety, depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, or borderline personality disorder, and other mental wellness challenges affecting their everyday life. Community-based day treatment programs are a step up in care for teens who have regressed or plateaued in traditional outpatient counseling, and they are an important step to consider before symptoms escalate, requiring hospitalization. Day treatment is also appropriate for clients who are stepping down from hospitalization.

We recognize that the ARMOR program is a large investment of time for the client and may mean lost time in school. However, for many of the clients we serve, their mental health diagnoses are affecting their lives to the point where their functioning and performance at school is suffering. We understand that many parents worry about whether their child will be able to catch up when they return to school full time.
We encourage school counselors, who support admission to the ARMOR program, to work with parents to ease these worries and create a plan for how their child will attend the ARMOR program without it having a negative effect on their long-term grades. We are also happy to work with school staff to create this plan as needed. We strongly believe that investing time in the ARMOR program will help each client grow and learn new skills that will help them be more effective in every aspect of their lives, including school.
