Partial Hospitalization Program

Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a safe, structured, psychiatric outpatient treatment program.

PHP is a step below inpatient hospitalization but offers a higher level of care than in traditional outpatient services. Many clients are referred to the PHP who have completed an inpatient stay and need a structured program for continued crisis stabilization or additional skill building to integrate back into their community. The PHP team closely monitors the patient’s mental status and designs individualized treatment plans and crisis intervention strategies.

About the Program

PHP provides the coping skills and thinking processes necessary to help the patient not only manage their current situation but learn proactive strategies to prevent future crises from occurring.

The PHP offers a multidisciplinary treatment through incorporating group interactions, social settings, individual counseling, and family interactions. With the help of licensed doctors, nurses, clinicians, and social workers, there is constant communication to discuss the patient’s progress. All our providers help to create a customized treatment program for each patient’s needs. The plan often includes family members, spouses, or close friends.

Most individuals in the PHP will remain in this level of care for five to 20 days. After completion of the PHP, clients will be referred to outpatient services for continued care and maintenance programs.
