Physicians Behavioral Hospital Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) offers comprehensive behavioral health treatment for individuals ages 18 and older. It is considered a “step down” from the Inpatient Psychiatric Program, which allows the benefit of structured treatment 20 hours each week and the balance of returning home daily once treatment is complete. Our PHP program is offered in an intimate setting and Individuals have the added benefit of access to a psychiatrist for medication adjustment as needed, which eliminates the waiting time often associated with scheduling outpatient psychiatrist appointments.
The PHP offers the support of staff and peers to those learning to cope with mental illness. The program is divided into several groups, based on specific diagnosis, to encourage individuals with similar challenges to share their experiences in a therapeutic group environment. Once enrolled, individuals are also assigned a treatment team to assist in meeting specific needs. The PHP enrolls individuals recently discharged from an inpatient psychiatric setting, and it is also available to those clients enrolled in the Intensive Outpatient Program who may need additional structure. In addition, clients may enter the program through direct referral by a mental health professional in the community.
The Partial Hospitalization Program is designed to address the mental health needs of adults 18 and over, while minimizing the need for more acute care in an inpatient setting. It is a viable option to those who have endured repeat inpatient hospitalization due to inadequate support and lack of coping skills. This program strives to break the cycle associated with mental illness and encourage successful outcomes through encouraging medication compliance, reframing unhealthy thought processes, and facilitating long-term goal setting. For more information or to schedule an assessment for program eligibility please contact the hospital. We have Community Liaisons on staff to come to you for onsite assessments or answer any questions that you may have.
