You will be involved in your child’s treatment in a number of important ways. Before your teen is admitted to our program you will participate in an initial pre-assessment questionnaire. During this assessment our admissions specialists will ask you a number of important questions about your child’s behavior and level of functioning. The information we gather during this assessment will be one of many ways by which our clinical team will collect information to be used in developing a treatment plan for your child. Once your teen is in treatment with us, you will be invited to participate in family therapy which will take place either once per week or bi-weekly.
Partial Hospitalization Program / PHP
The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a structured and intensive treatment milieu that operates 8 hours per day, 4 days per week. This program offers coordinated multidisciplinary clinical services for adolescents that are able to function at a minimally appropriate level and do not present as an imminent potential for harm to themselves or others. Unlike residential clients who sleep at the facility, teens in the Partial Hospitalization Program go home to their families at the end of the day. PHP is the recommended next step for graduates of a Residential Treatment Program. However, completion of the Residential Program is not required for an adolescent to enroll in Partial Hospitalization.
Advantages of Partial Hospitalization for Adolescents
Partial Hospitalization is a chance for your child to spend 8 hours per day, 5 days per week immersed in a structured treatment program that is designed to promote healing, teach effective coping skills, and incite lasting and meaningful change. Teens in the Partial Hospitalization Program attend multiple psycho-educational groups daily, receive individual therapy up to three times per week, individual mentoring, and adventure therapies. Treatment is delivered in a cozy and spacious setting in a facility that is richly furnished and colorfully decorated with all of the comforts of a safe space.
This well structured day program will help to heal your child mentally, emotionally, physically, socially and even spiritually, as yoga and meditation are also practiced at different times throughout the week.
