The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) offers an effective way to help avoid hospitalization and ease the symptoms of depression.
Partial Hospitalization Program
The program also helps older adults deal with issues such as anxiety, grief and loss and other disabilies. Patients attend the partial/intensive outpatient programs several hours a day, up to five days a week.
Participants also have the opportunity to socialize with peers who share many of the same interests and concerns. This is especially important for those who live alone or who have isolated themselves. The PHP can also serve as a continuation of treatment following hospitalization.
The Partial Hospitalization Program offers the following services:
Comprehensive psychiatric evaluation
Group and individual psychotherapy
Medication treatment and education
Health education and management
