Key Transitions Los Angeles Teen Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a structured and intensive treatment that operates 8 hours per day, five days per week. PHP for teens provides a higher level of care than Teen IOP and is typically 3 – 4 weeks long. This program offers coordinated multidisciplinary clinical services for adolescents that can function at a minimally appropriate level and do not present an imminent potential for harm to themselves or others. Unlike residential clients who sleep at the facility, adolescents in the Teen Partial Hospitalization Program go home to their families at the end of the day. PHP for teens 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.
This well-structured day program will help heal your child mentally, emotionally, physically, socially, and even spiritually, as yoga and meditation are also practiced at different times throughout the week.
You will be involved in your child’s treatment in several essential 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 several important questions about your child’s behavior and level of functioning. The information we gather during this assessment will be one of many ways our clinical team will collect information to develop 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 occur once per week or bi-weekly.
A portion of each day is dedicated to education, where we’ll make sure your teen is focused on their school work. Our staff is with them to help build an educational structure within themselves.
Alongside individual and family therapy, our group therapy sessions are often the most meaningful to teens. Group therapy is geared towards constructive discussions, where teens get to discuss and associate their issues with other peers experiencing similar problems. In these groups, teens often hear and take advice from their peers based on what has worked for them individually. Clients also will meet with our adolescent psychiatrist for an initial evaluation and follow-up appointments while in our program.
Our Los Angeles Teen Partial hospitalization Program is an essential step in any teenage recovery process. It is highly intensive but less intensive than an inpatient stay. The goal is to continue developing the skills needed to handle life’s problems independently and further practice those skills in a controlled setting while still receiving supportive therapy from therapists trained in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Teen PHP participants participate in therapy sessions covering handling emotions, managing problems and relationships, improving communication skills, self-esteem, and problem-solving. Family therapy, and learning how to deal with family issues play a large role in patient growth within our Teen PHP.
Teen PHP is ideal for teens who may benefit from a little more structure or have experienced weeks or months of inpatient care and are ready to return home. Because Teen PHP is so individualized and comprehensive – covering everything from recovery skills to family dynamics to school issues – it’s an ideal step for teens who need help with everyday life. If your teenager struggles with substance abuse, serious behavioral issues, or severe mental health issues, our adolescent PHP will be a good fit for them. Sometimes teens need a little boost before they’re ready to begin outpatient treatment. Teen PHP provides that boost with a month of intense care that also emphasizes family involvement. Our specialists develop a personalized treatment plan that stays true to the teen’s goals, personality, and needs.
Our Los Angeles Adolescent partial hospitalization program aims to give teenagers a structured therapeutic environment that provides the tools to lead a healthy lifestyle. We provide teenagers with the coping skills they need most. We help them reintegrate into their families, schools, and society-at-large.
Key factors our Teen PHP focuses on:
- Learning to deal with family issues
- Learning to love and appreciate family again
- Why a sober life is okay, and how to cope with temptations
- How to better control your thoughts
- Thinking long-term and learning to make correct decisions
- Focusing on the importance of education
- Igniting passions within the teenager, so they become motivated.
