1) The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) level of care provides clients with a safe and structured treatment environment without a total disruption of their daily routine. The PHP client will attend the program 5 days each week and participate in four group sessions each day. Along with group sessions, the client will participate in individual and family counseling as well as psychiatric evaluation and medication management with our psychiatrist. PHP clients are involved in treatment generally from 9am-2pm daily.
• PHP is ideal for clients who want to maintain their independence in the community however require increased access to therapeutic skills, counseling, and support from mental health clinicians.

2) The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) makes for a perfect step-up from traditional outpatient program. The IOP is less intensive than the PHP. The IOP client will attend the program 2-4 days a week for three hours a day. Group therapy is offered from 9a-12pm. Staff will work with the client to customize the program to the client’s availability and their individual needs. Individual counseling, family therapy, and follow-up with the psychiatrist can be provided as well.

Clients who enter either program will have a psychiatric evaluation by our psychiatrist. A majority of clients who enter the programs will be seen by psychiatry within 48 hours of admission.

During treatment in either programs, staff will work with the client’s established outpatient providers in an effort to coordinate and improve treatment outcome.
