Partial Hospitalization Program

A Partial Hospitalization Program is a day or evening program in which a patient receives treatment throughout the day or evening and then returns home at night. A great step-down from inpatient treatment or diversionary to an inpatient admission.  Works well for someone who needs the structure of inpatient treatment but has the ability to remain at home at night, or when traditional outpatient services have not been effective in fully meeting a patient’s needs.  Arbour Counseling has multiple PHP programs designed for every type of patient, no matter if they are a child, adolescent, adult or older adult.

Our Partial Hospitalization Programs are group-based and short-term for individuals requiring a higher level of care.  Our teams work to promote a group that is therapeutic, safe, and supportive.  We thrive for an environment in which the emotional and psychological well-being of the individual is maintained and encouraged.  We provide intensive therapy in a nurturing setting to help patients improve functioning and regain a better quality of life.  Group therapy gives patients the opportunity to learn from peers and gain support while allowing them to maintain at home. 

Our Partial Programs staff includes Master-Level Clinicians and Graduate Level Interns that work in collaboration with an Occupational Therapist, Clinical Nurse Specialist and Psychiatrist to provide short-term group therapy.

Our PHPs Consist of:

  • Interdisciplinary Treatment Team
  • Initial Psychiatric Assessment
  • Groups including; Psychotherapy, Psycho-Education, Expressive Therapy, and Occupational Therapy.
  • Medication Management
  • Coordination of care with outside providers
  • Discharge and Aftercare planning

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP): Typically half-day programming a few times a week, patients have the ability to maintain responsibilities while still continuing with intensive treatment.
