Partial Hospitalization programs are time limited, medically supervised programs that offer comprehensive, therapeutically intensive, coordinated, and structured clinical services. The program consists of a series of structured, face-to-face therapeutic sessions organized at various levels of intensity and frequency. They are designed for persons who are experiencing increased symptomatology, disturbances in behavior or other conditions that negatively impact mental or behavioral health of the person served. Given this, the persons served in PHP do not pose an immediate risk to themselves or others. Services are provided for the purpose of diagnostic evaluation, active treatment of a person’s condition or to prevent inpatient care, as transitional care following an inpatient stay in lieu of continued hospitalization, as a step-down service, or when the severity of symptoms is such that success in a less acute level of care is tenuous.
