"Our son started at EASTCONN’s [Northeast Regional Program] in October of this year … The communication is terrific. We always know what's going on with our son and the program and feel comfortable asking questions. We used to worry daily about getting calls from the other school to pick him up or saying they called 211. At EASTCONN, they, as a team, are able to handle whatever comes up and that gives us peace of mind when we send him off every day." S.T., Northeast Regional Program Parent

Clinical Day Treatment

EASTCONN operates two clinical day treatment programs in Northeastern Connecticut: Northeast Regional Program (NRP) in Putnam and Educational and Vocational Center (EVC) in Columbia.

Programs are designed for students who need a highly structured, supportive, therapeutic environment in order to achieve academic and behavioral success. The programs emphasize supporting students in acquiring the academic, social, emotional and behavioral skills necessary to successfully return to their local public schools or a less restrictive environment, and combine individualized instruction with a multimodal approach and high-interest materials to maximize learning.
