Partial Hospital Program
The Partial Hospital Program is a time-limited, structured program of psychiatric services, group psychotherapy, and other therapeutic services specifically designed to meet the mental health needs of individuals experiencing an acute crisis.
The Partial Hospital Program 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.
The total length of the program varies based on the unique patient need. Most patients participate for 3 weeks. Program hours are Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm. There are several breaks during the day. Lunch is served every day.
Program services include:
- Individual psychiatric evaluation and medication management
- Groups focused on setting goals and reviewing progress
- Psychotherapy groups
- Occupational Therapy groups
- Wellness groups
- Skills Education groups
The treatment team includes a psychiatrist, registered nurse, occupational therapist, psychiatric case worker, and other mental health professionals.
Our Commitment to Health and Wellness
In addition to mental health recovery, our staff is committed to ensuring physical health and wellness. To that end, active patients in either program have access to regular care from our staff nurse, access to our on-site primary medicine clinic, and access to a cardiologist. We are also pleased to offer smoking cessation groups and food and nutrition services.
