“Step One is a first step in turning fear into hope; confusion into confidence.  Early Intervention is not simply a program-it’s a philosophy of family centered care.  It’s a program where professionals listen to what families need and affirm their choices. – Step One Family

Discovery Day Treatment is designed for adults living with chronic mental illness and, for some, also struggling with substance use

Discovery Day Treatment, a program of Aspire Health Alliance, is a life-changing, community-based group therapy program for adults with long-term mental health challenges. Designed to help those who struggle with social isolation and lack of daytime structure, Discovery helps its members find meaning, connection, and purpose in their lives. Our goal is to provide our diverse population with a supportive and nonjudgmental environment in which members can achieve their goals, challenge stigma, and live as independently as possible in the community. This unique and comprehensive approach has helped many of our members prevent or decrease inpatient admissions. Discovery currently offers over 60 unique clinical groups with a holistic approach; our multi-disciplinary team treats the whole person – mind, body, and spirit – while supporting connection to others.

Discovery provides daily structure in a supportive environment where clients are active in the development of their treatment plans. The Discovery team includes social workers, mental health counselors, art and expressive therapists, peer support specialists, and a consulting psychiatrist dedicated to helping clients identify and overcome barriers to recovery. During a minimum of three full days (9:00 AM – 2:30 PM) a week for at least 12 weeks, clients work on relationship building and communication during group activities that focus on emotional regulation, behavioral and cognitive therapy, health, fitness, and routine skills that are important to successful independent living.
