Partial Hospitalization

Patient Guide to AHS Partial Hospitalization Programs

Arbour Health System offers partial hospitalization programs (PHP) for patients as part of the treatment continuum. These programs offer a safe, structured environment while enabling the patient to return home at night and maintain important family and community relationships. Partial hospitalization may be appropriate for patients making the transition from inpatient to outpatient treatment or as a program alternative for patients who do not present any danger to themselves or others but need a structured treatment plan and environment. Family and support person involvement is a crucial part of the treatment process; since the patient returns home each night it is important that family members and support persons are involved in the therapeutic process.

For PHP admissions options, please contact our Intake Department.
For PHP transportation options, please view the AHS PHP Transportation Guide.
