Program Elements

  • Multidisciplinary treatment team
  • Complete medical and psychiatric evaluations

Treatment is provided for a wide range of psychiatric illnesses. The emphasis within the Partial Hospital Program is on restoring patients' health and preventing future setbacks. This is accomplished through education about psychiatric illness and its treatment, behavior modifications, and by building coping skills that generate solutions to problems at home, at work, or during life transitions.

Intensive Outpatient Program

The IOP, also an alternative to, or transition from, inpatient care, is designed for patients in need of therapy more than once a week. The service offers many of the same components as the Partial Hospital Program, and is open to patients 18 years of age and older. Specialized individual, group and family therapies are provided up to 15 hours per week, for a maximum of three hours per day, over a two to three week period.

Financial Information

Managed care plans, other insurance, Medicare, Medicaid and private pay are accepted.
