STAR Day Treatment Program

Since 1997, Springfield Transitions and Recovery Program has been helping people with psychiatric conditions gain independence. Our group sessions can help you manage stress, learn job skills, explore creative outlets, and more.

Supporting Healthy, Balanced Lives

We’re all seeking balance as we work on our relationships and managing our physical and mental health.

Having support and structure can help you heal from difficult experiences, gain confidence, and move toward greater independence.

Balance Day Treatment Program is available to adults 18 or older who are dealing with a psychiatric condition and at least two of these functional limitations:

  • Vocational or educational productivity
  • Emotional stability
  • Social relations
  • Self-care

We invite individuals to join treatment groups based on their unique needs. For example, our Life Skills group teaches members about nutrition, money management, safe community participation, home care, and self care.

With the guidance of a therapist and the support of peers, people feel free to share their experiences. Together, we learn to communicate more effectively and work through any challenges that come up.
