Partial hospitalization program (PHP)

The PHP provides an intense, structured treatment setting. It can be useful if you have difficulty maintaining current daily routines because you suffer from anxiety, depression or other mental health symptoms. This patient-centered program provides flexible treatment options that are less intensive than an inpatient hospitalization but more supportive than outpatient therapy alone.

The PHP offers treatment during the day with the convenience of being home in the evening.

Intensive outpatient program (IOP)

Our IOP partners with you to improve coping, manage stress and facilitate recovery. It involves an evidence-based approach that combines group therapy and individualized treatment. Our goal is to help you balance work, family and school while learning effective tools to cope with disruptive symptoms.

The IOP can be useful for you if you are experiencing behavioral or emotional difficulties with symptoms of depression, anxiety and/or other mental health conditions. The IOP is tailored to people who have achieved stabilization through the PHP but need additional care.


Initial health assessments

Upon admission, members of the treatment team will gather your information to complete various health assessments, such as:

  • Activity/recreational
  • General physical health
  • Personal strengths
  • Psychiatric
  • Psychosocial

Our program features

As you go through our programming, we measure your progress based on your overall response. Some of the features of our program include:

  • Community/reflection meetings
  • Goal setting
  • Journal assignments
  • Leisure and quiet times
  • Medications
  • Pet therapy
  • Sleep assessment
  • Therapeutic exercise

Discharge planning

Aftercare planning begins on admission. Outpatient plans will be arranged prior to discharge. An adult partial hospitalization program is also available as a step down from our inpatient care program for those who need additional structure and support.
