Our highly-trained and experienced staff are capable of treating a wide range of behavioral health problems.

Partial Hospital Program
9:00 am to 1:00 pm, Monday – Friday

What is a Partial Hospital Program (PHP)?  PHP’s are designed to provide multiple integrated services for patients with behavioral health problems.

  • Participants attend four groups daily, five days per week, learning coping skills and mindfulness techniques that promote and sustain psychiatric wellness.
  • Our psychiatrist and nurse practitioner work to clarify diagnoses, and provide intensive medication management to stabilize psychiatric symptoms.
  • Our clinicians work to connect participants to appropriate outpatient / community services.
  • When participants have improved but continue to require significant support, they often transition to the Intensive Outpatient Program.
  • Length of treatment at the PHP varies based on the needs and goals of the participant. Average length of treatment is approximately two weeks.

Intensive Outpatient Program
3:00 pm to 6:00 pm, Monday, Tuesday, & Thursday

What is an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)?  IOP’s are designed to provide significant supportive services for patients with behavioral health problems.

  • IOP treatment occurs three days per week. Participants attend three groups each day, learning coping skills and mindfulness techniques that promote and sustain psychiatric wellness.
  • It is very common for PHP participants to transition to IOP treatment as they improve, allowing integration of new skills into daily living as treatment progresses.
  • In some cases, participants may begin treatment in the IOP. Clients starting at IOP level of care generally do not require medication management.
  • Length of treatment at the IOP varies based on the needs and goals of the participant. Average length of treatment is approximately two weeks.
