Following an initial assessment of the substance abuse situation in the country, Daytop International deploys its training staff to introduce the concepts of the self-help social learning treatment model. The Daytop training program covers four distinct, yet overlapping treatment components that are essential to the treatment of addiction. Technical assistance and consultation are available to assist in the development of treatment programs utilizing this model. Internships in Daytop, USA are available for therapeutic staff of programs dedicated to the model.
The Daytop concept is now utilized in 66 countries around the world.
