Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

A Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a structured form of mental health treatment that provides intensive support to individuals who do not require 24/7 inpatient care but still need a higher level of care than traditional outpatient therapy. It provides individuals with a supportive and therapeutic environment, while allowing them to return home each day. It acts as a bridge between inpatient and outpatient mental health care and research shows patients having the best outcomes when they participate in the full spectrum of care which includes Inpatient Hospitalization, PHP, Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), Outpatient Therapy and Psychiatry.

Key features:
  • Intensive Therapy - PHPs offer a range of therapeutic services, in a group setting, that include processing emotions, psychoeducation, pet therapy, coping skills, and healthy activities.
  • Group Milieu - Along with providing the safety and structure that is needed for healing and growth, individuals can expect to learn alongside peers and be afforded much needed social interaction, designed to promote wellness, and health through belonging and connection.
  • Medication Management - For those who require medication as part of their treatment plan, PHPs provide medication management services. Individuals meet with a Psychiatrist on-site, ensuring that they receive the appropriate medications and dosage under professional supervision.
  • Flexible Scheduling - Participants attend during the day and return home at night.
  • Multi-disciplinary Approach - A team of mental health professionals, including Psychiatrists, Social Workers, Nurses and Counselors, work together to provide personalized care to participants depending on their individual needs.
Who can benefit from PHP?

PHPs are beneficial for individuals who may not need full-time inpatient care but require more structured and intensive treatment than traditional outpatient therapy.

Individuals who benefit typically have a chronic mental illness such as Major Depression, Bipolar Disorder, and Anxiety Disorders.

Our Adult PHP program treats individuals who are 18 years and older. We offer 2 PHP cohorts that meet Mon - Fri, from 9:00am - 3:00pm.

Our Adolescent PHP program treats youth, ages 13-17. We have one cohort that meets Mon - Fri, from 9:00am - 3:00pm.

Interested in PHP?

Individuals can join our Adult or Adolescent PHP easily by calling to schedule a free, in person assessment. Online scheduling is also available.

Intensive Outpatient Program IOP

An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a secondary step-down program for individuals, providing intensive support and therapy, 3x/week for 3 hours a day; allowing them to continue living at home and tending to their daily responsibilities. It bridges the gap between inpatient and outpatient care, offering a flexible and highly supportive solution.

Key features:
  • Comprehensive Therapy - IOPs consist of group therapy, including processing of day to day thoughts, feelings, events, psychoeducation and a therapeutic activity or life skills training. A multi-disciplinary team of Therapists, Social Workers, Psychiatrists work with an individual to provide holistic care in a group milieu.
  • Treatment Time - IOPs are less time consuming per day than PHP, allowing for individuals to manage responsibilities at home, school, and/or work. The program runs longer, offering more opportunities for patients to meet individualized treatment goals, build a support network, and link to community resources.
  • Faster Outcomes - IOPs are crucial to the success of patients’ long-term prognoses, as it reduces re-admission rates for inpatient hospitalizations.
Who can benefit from IOP?

IOPs are beneficial for individuals who are not in need of Inpatient Psychiatric care or who need the intensity of a PHP program, but would still benefit from more structure and treatment time than outpatient therapy.

Individuals seen typically have a chronic mental illness such as Major Depression, Bipolar Disorder, and Anxiety Disorders.

Our Adult IOP program treats individuals ages 18+. We offer 3 Adult IOP programs, 2 cohorts meet Mon, Wed, Fri from 9:00am - 12:00pm and one cohort meets Mon, Tues, Thurs from 1:00pm - 4:00pm.

Our Adolescent IOP program treats youth, ages 13-17, and is offered Tues, Wed, Thurs from 9:00am - 12:00pm.

Interested in IOP?

Individuals interested in Adult or Adolescent IOP can call or schedule an assessment online. We strive to offer placements into one of our groups within 24-48 hours.

Community partnership

As a psychiatric hospital, Tucker Pavilion continues a long-standing tradition of providing exemplary behavioral health services to the community. We use innovative therapeutic services along with an individualized approach to care. To do this, we work closely with community partners such as The Jason Foundation, which is dedicated to the prevention of the silent epidemic — youth suicide.

We work toward this goal by offering educational and awareness programs. They are designed to equip young people, educators, youth workers and parents with the tools and resources needed to help identify and assist at-risk youth.
