Partial Hospitalization

Partial Hospitalization

The partial hospitalization treatment model operates 7 hours each day, Monday - Friday, while helping patients to regain and maintain health outside of treatment when returning home at night and on weekends. This level of care may be appropriate for patients seeking a step-down from more intensive hospital or residential treatment or for patients seeking a step-up from outpatient group or individual therapy.
