Partial Hospital Program

Our partial hospital program provides intensive, highly structured outpatient behavioral health services to stabilize patients suffering from acute mental health symptoms. Patients may enter the program from an outpatient or inpatient setting. Our multidisciplinary, expert team provides individualized treatment that focuses on helping patients achieve behavioral milestones. Our primary goal is to restore a level of wellness that enables patients to function outside of the hospital setting.

Patients receive active treatment four hours per day, five days per week for a maximum of six weeks. During this time, our staff closely assesses and cares for each patient. While treating patients, we also engage support service providers within the community to ensure that the patient has the type of care needed at home during and after participation in our program.

Our partial hospital care is evidence-based and progressive using the approach of a brief, intensive, and structured program to help the patient sustain recovery, by:

  • Focusing on maximum restoration of well-being
  • Developing the most suitable after-care plan

Patients, mental health providers, and patients’ significant others collaborate to prevent relapse.
