Partial Hospital Program

The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for youth provides multi-specialty treatment through group, individual, and family therapy sessions. These intensive treatment options focus on thorough assessment and symptom stabilization while working on healthy living skills. Treatment is guided by a Board Certified Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist who meets with all patients individually.  PHP is a helpful level of care for students who are struggling with symptoms of mental illness that interfere with their ability to function in their daily tasks for childhood or adolescence tasks like; going to school, progressing academically, making and keeping friends, and participating in family life.  Potential patients for PHP should seek an Admissions Diagnostic Assessment to help determine the course of mental health treatment that will best meet their needs.
