Why Choose Partial Hospitalization Program Treatment?

A partial hospitalization outpatient treatment program is best for treating mental illness in individuals who are either stepping down from residential treatment or entering treatment and need more structure than an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).

For those stepping down from residential treatment for anxiety disorders, depression or other mental health conditions, a PHP is a great way to continue to receive treatment and readjust slowly using the skills you learned during your inpatient stay.

For those entering treatment for the first time, a PHP allows for individuals to see mental health professionals and receive many of the same mental health services as an inpatient stay with the added benefit of returning home or to sober living at the end of the day.
