Adult Partial Hospital Program

The Centers for Behavioral Health’s Adult Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a short term, intense outpatient group treatment program open to individuals with acute psychiatric conditions that require more support and structure than outpatient treatment alone can provide. PHP may also serve as a transition following inpatient hospitalization as we provide the intensity of services found on an inpatient unit for those who do not or no longer require 24 hour supervision.

  • The PHP is a short term (7-10 day) program
  • 5 days a week
  • 8:30 am and 4:00 pm
  • Participants are expected to attend daily, as scheduled

Treatment Approach

The Partial Hospital Program’s comprehensive psychiatric assessment, aftercare planning, medication management, individualized and group therapies are designed to assist participants in the acquisition and/or restoration of skills required for successful re-entry living.

A major focus of our program is to assist and strengthen the patient’s family and social network and provide opportunities for skill acquisition and support as they resume the roles held prior to admission and/or explore new ones.

The Partial Hospital Program staff has the capability to serve individuals with mental health diagnoses and co-occurring substance use disorders. The program can be readily modified to adequately meet these patients’ or others presenting with complex needs.

Treatment Team

Our Partial Hospital treatment team consists of a Psychiatrist, Nurse Practitioner, Social Worker, Psychologist and Occupational Therapists. Our program’s diagnostic services and psychosocial treatment modalities include therapeutic environment, nursing, psychiatric medication management, case management and occupational therapy. All treatment rendered is under the supervision of the medical director.
