Full Day Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

The Full Day Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) (mental health or substance use related issues) is a short-term (10-15 days), intensive treatment program for male, female and non-binary adolescents ages 12 to 18 (if still in high school) who are experiencing an acute crisis. The program includes multidisciplinary assessment, treatment, and stabilization with the goals of maintaining safety, crisis management, and symptom relief. PHP is held Monday through Friday for six hours per day. Adolescents attend PHP instead of school as a medical leave of absence. PHP allows the adolescent to remain in his/her/their home and community while receiving an intensive therapeutic experience primarily through group therapy with peers.


After School Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)

We offer two Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) – for Mental Health or Substance Use Disorders. These programs are open to male, female and non-binary adolescents, ages 12 to 18 (if still in high school) who are experiencing emotional or behavioral problems that are significantly impacting their ability to be successful in the home, school or community. An adolescent attending an IOP program must be currently attending school and maintaining a level of safety that does not require constant supervision. The components of the programs include weekly multifamily group, group therapy, psychoeducational programming, and activities. IOP is held three days per week, three hours per day after school hours, with multi-family group one evening per week. The typical length of the program is eight to twelve weeks.


Medication Management

Board-certified psychiatrists provide individuals (children 6-11 years, adolescents 12 and above) with outpatient mental health services after an initial psychiatric evaluation or consultation. They ensure a comprehensive approach to behavioral health by coordinating with the referral sources and/or other treatment providers. Following the initial evaluation, the psychiatrist will discuss treatment options including medication. Other recommendation may include therapy or more intensive services such as Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) or inpatient psychiatric hospitalization depending on the severity of symptoms and safety concerns.
