Partial hospitalization program (PHP)
Our partial hospitalization program for adolescents helps provide a lower level of care as an alternative to inpatient treatment for those who can receive treatment in a less restrictive environment. Our program operates Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., and lunch is included.
Each adolescent who enrolls in PHP works collaboratively with their treatment team, which includes a psychiatrist, registered nurse, mental health therapist, activity therapist, and other professionals, all while working with the patient’s outpatient providers to arrange aftercare treatment.
Patients are offered a variety of groups to participate in, including group therapy topics such as anger management, conflict resolution, depression, anxiety, and coping skills.
