Who is appropriate for the Continuing Day Treatment program?
To qualify, a person MUST have an Axis I diagnosis. This means that the individual must have a mental illness which has been diagnosed by a psychiatrist. Some of the most common diagnosis that are appropriate include Schizophrenia, Major Depression, and Bipolar Mood Disorder. These individuals would be more appropriately places in a treatment program rather than jail. They will not be a threat to the community and they will have functional deficits which can be addressed by the CDT.
