Project Description

Rainbow U, a day treatment program designed around “U”

Rainbow U is an exciting program that provides more choices, more treatment options, and more sustained achievement. Participants in Rainbow U explore an array of interesting and entertaining activities while they work on clear treatment objectives.

Residential and outpatient clients have the opportunity to participate in Rainbow U according to their individual abilities and interests, and courses are offered at a variety of Rainbow’s treatment locations.

Pathways to Therapeutic Goals

In addition to the traditional individual therapy that Rainbow offers, Rainbow U adds two types of therapeutic groups: core and elective. Core courses are prescribed based on the client’s therapeutic needs in Physical, Cognitive, Emotional, Social and Independent Living areas.

Elective courses are the activities that clients choose for themselves. Each trimester they select from a variety of courses such as Photography, Book Club, Pet Therapy, Community Adventures, Yoga, Music Appreciation and Dealing with Loss. With this wide range of electives, clients are motivated to participate because they are able to choose courses in which they are interested.

Encouraging and Rewarding Success

Each participant earns daily points for achievement and participation which can be redeemed for rewards like concert tickets or gift cards.

Clients also receive an achievement report at the end of each quarter to help them stay in touch with their goals. Achievement reports include:

  • Total percentage of courses attended
  • Daily and quarterly points earned
  • Summarized ratings of courses in the areas of Citizenship, Active Participation, Instruction Acceptance and Course Skill Utilization

And because these achievements are worth celebrating, we periodically hold an awards program to highlight everyone’s success!

More Choices, More Results, More Fun!

Rainbow U includes interesting and exciting activities, even on the weekends. The high-quality programming that we’re known for has been built into Rainbow U to give clients more choices, more results, and more fun!
