Lake Forest Academy Day Treatment

Coastal Horizons’ Day Treatment Program in conjunction with New Hanover County School System acts as part of a multidisciplinary team with family, students, educators, and other mental health providers to ensure success in achieving goals set out by the Individual Education Plan (IEP) and Person-Centered Plan (PCP). Our program staff provide mental health and substance use interventions in the school milieu. Students are taught positive problem-solving skills through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and staff serves as role models for practicing healthy social interaction skills. Interventions target depression, anxiety, and oppositional symptoms and behaviors to increase the likelihood of success in traditional classroom settings. Day Treatment is available for Kindergarten through 8th grade students year round. On call crisis support is also available for currently enrolled students 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
