Horizon House
Continuing Day Treatment Program
7 Clayton Ave
Cortland, NY 13045
Mission Statement
       The mission of Horizon House is to offer individuals whose functioning has been impeded by a severe/enduring mental illness, the opportunity to obtain and maintain the clinical stability, community-based support and life skills necessary to live in the community and pursue their personal life goals.
What is Continuing Day Treatment?
       A group focused clinical program that offers a variety of interventions and educational experiences for people whose lives have been impacted by a severe and enduring mental illness.
       This program helps clients to enhance their life skills, clinical stability and general functioning.
Who Benefits from This?
       Individuals whose lives have been substantially impaired by their mental illness and are in need of a higher level of structure and support than that which can be provided in a clinic setting
How is This Program Different from Others?
       Based on a group format, not individual contacts.
       This allows individuals not only to benefit from the structure, groups programs, skill building activities, counseling, and stimulation offered by staff; but also to learn from the experiences and expertise of his or her peers.
       Each person enrolled in the program receives individualized evaluation, treatment planning and psychiatric services and is assigned a primary therapist.
How Often do People Have to Attend?
       Part of the Treatment planning process is to set up a schedule for the program attendance based upon the individuals current clinical condition.
       Individuals need to attend Horizon House regularly and participate in various groups and programs if they are to benefit from this type of service.
