Diversion Acute Stabilization Program


The DAS program is a 28-day co-ed diversion residential program for children and adolescents between the ages of 9-17. The primary focus of the DAS program is to reduce acute symptoms, stabilize medication, avert inpatient hospitalization and divert from long term placement such as a Residential Treatment Facility. The DAS Program includes 24 hour, 7 days a week supervision and support. This program emphasizes The Sanctuary Model and Trauma-Informed Care which prepares youth for integration back into their community, or in some situations, to stabilize prior to moving on to another level of care.

MHY’s DAS program provides basic psychiatric assessments, medication monitoring as well as intensive individual, family, and group therapy. All referrals to DAS must come from a professional service provider working directly with the child, evaluating acute symptoms warranting DAS level of care, and all children will need to meet the medical necessity criteria for placement under Medical Assistance.
