Partial Hospitalization Programs

Adult Program

Group of people talking, group therapyThe Adult Partial Hospitalization Program is a short-term intensive treatment program for individuals experiencing significant mental or behavioral problems. Our goal is to assist individuals in managing these problems.

The program is for adults, age 18 and over, who meet criteria for admission and cannot be adequately treated through traditional outpatient services. The program offers many groups including those which help with emotions management, life skills, and substance abuse issues.  The program meets from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday. Each group is 1 1/2 hours in length and is led by a variety of mental health professionals. In addition, each patient meets individually with his/her psychiatrist/nurse practitioner and case manager to set treatment goals, manage medication, and develop an aftercare plan.
