Program Overview

The Partial Hospital Program provides short-term (approximately 3 weeks) intensive mental health treatment as an alternative to inpatient hospitalization or as an option following inpatient psychiatric hospitalization. The goal of the Partial Hospital Program is to reduce the need for inpatient psychiatric hospitalization whenever possible while supporting mental health recovery. The program’s philosophy is based on the belief that individuals can learn to cope effectively with symptoms and stressors.

Program Details

The Partial Hospital Program runs Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. There are several breaks throughout the day and Lunch is provided.

Patients typically attend this program for 16 consecutive weekdays. They participate in Psychotherapy Group, Skills Groups, OT and other Rehab Groups (i.e. Recreational Therapy, Wellness, Nurse) daily. Additionally, participants receive individual psychiatric services and medication management while in the program. Participants are generally required to temporarily pause any other outpatient mental health services they are receiving while they are enrolled in the partial hospitalization program. PHP is specifically designed to meet the mental health needs of individuals experiencing an acute crisis.

The treatment team includes a psychiatrist, registered nurse, occupational therapist, psychiatric case worker, and other mental health professionals.
