About the Program: Partial Hospitalization 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.

The Partial Hospitalization Program 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. 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.
