Partial Hospitalization Programs for Mental Health

PHP Program

What is a Partial Hospitalization Program?

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is a level of care that provides clients with access to a safe, structured treatment environment without total disruption of their daily routines. Our PHP allows your loved one to either live at our residential facilities during treatment, or stay home and commute to treatment every day. It’s a full-time mental health counseling program that requires dedication and commitment to improving one’s health and wellness.

Who is a partial hospitalization program best for?

PHP is ideal for clients who have come from an inpatient setting who are able to maintain their independence in the community, or those who need more mental health counseling support than offered in part-time or traditional outpatient treatment. It’s a great transitional step between inpatient and part-time outpatient treatment programs.

What types of mental health counseling are involved in a partial hospitalization program?

All mental health counseling programs at the Sylvia Brafman Mental Health Center are individualized and customized to each client’s particular situation, background and needs. Our intimate treatment setting allows us to offer our clients one-on-one attention, personalized therapy and compassionate care.
