Partial-Hospital Programs

Day treatment, or partial-hospital programs, gives patients eight hours of programming each day. Day treatment provides a higher level of care than traditional outpatient clinics. Some patients transition to day treatment after being released from the hospital for their mental health condition.

Partial programs include group, individual, and family therapies under the supervision of a psychiatrist.

The treatment team includes board certified child/adolescent psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, expressive therapists, an education specialist, as well as an addiction specialist, when appropriate.
