Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
Our partial hospitalization program has a limited capacity. We keep our clientele numbers low in order to better serve the adolescent population. Smaller group sizes and more individual sessions improves the outcomes of clients in a therapeutic setting.
Partial hospitalization provides intensive individualized care provided by doctoral and masters level staff and medication support with our on site, double board certified psychiatrist. We diagnose and treat mental health and addiction issues with the best quality of care.
