Partial Hospitalization Program for Teens

The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a structured and intensive treatment milieu that operates 8 hours per day, 5 days per week. This program offers coordinated multidisciplinary clinical services for adolescents that are able to function at a minimally appropriate level and do not present as an imminent potential for harm to themselves or others. Unlike residential clients who sleep at the facility, teens in the Partial Hospitalization Program go home to their families at the end of the day. Participants in the day program have Eating Disorder, Psychiatric, Behavioral, and Substance Abuse difficulties that require more intensive treatment than weekly therapy or intensive outpatient. PHP is the recommended next step for graduates of our Residential Program. However, completion of the Residential Program is not required for an adolescent to enroll in Partial Hospitalization.

Advantages of Partial Hospitalization for Adolescents

Partial Hospitalization is a chance for your child to spend 8 hours per day, 7 days per week immersed in a structured treatment program that is designed to promote healing, teach effective coping skills, and incite lasting and meaningful change. Teens in the Partial Hospitalization Program attend multiple psycho-educational groups daily, receive individual therapy up to three times per week, eat healthy meals designed by a registered dietitian, and attend a state-of-the-art gym every single day. Treatment is delivered in a cozy and spacious home-like setting in a facility that is richly furnished and colorfully decorated with all of the comforts of home.

Our Partial-Day Program Provides Comprehensive Structure

The Partial Hospitalization Program is a daily milieu which is modeled to reflect a healthy lifestyle.  The day is structured around psycho-educational group therapies and academic instruction, each of which takes place twice per day.  Throughout the day your child will eat healthy meals planned by a registered dietitian, visit a state-of-the-art gym, attend group and individual therapy and spend up to 4 hours per day in the classroom. This well structured day program will help to heal your child mentally, emotionally, physically, socially and even spiritually, as yoga and meditation are also practiced at different times throughout the week.

A Healing Environment That Leads to Recovery

It is often the case that a struggling teenager’s day-to-day pattern and social influences contribute to their struggles and it becomes necessary to remove the teen from those influences in order to see a change in behavior. Partial Hospitalization is a wonderful opportunity for your child to forge a new path under the careful guidance of house staff and our clinical team.

In PHP your child will spend the day with other teens who have similar struggles. Teens in PHP lend much-needed support to each other and those who are new to the program find hope in the success stories of those who are further along in their recovery.

Personalized Treatment Plans for Your Teen

Teens enrolled in the Partial Hospitalization Program benefit from a personalized treatment plan designed by a multidisciplinary team of experts in adolescent psychiatry and psychology.  This team is led by a board-certified adolescent psychiatrist and involves licensed clinicians, licensed therapists, licensed vocational nurses group therapists, academic facilitators and other trained professionals.  Your child’s treatment plan is based on their own unique needs and designed with their own personal strengths in mind.
