The Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program and Transition Intensive Outpatient Program are for adolescents 12-18 years of age who are still in school. Both programs are group focused and utilize cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy concepts.
Family involvement is an important part of the treatment process in both programs. Through weekly family meetings, our therapists educate family members on treatment goals and assist them in engaging the adolescent patient in a supportive manner at home. Our therapists also work with families regarding discharge planning, including recommendations for additional treatment and referrals for outpatient care.
Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program
The program is designed to be a safe and structured transition from inpatient treatment and may also be an alternative option when conventional outpatient therapy is not sufficient to stabilize an adolescent’s symptoms. The program’s evidenced-based curriculum is designed to help patients develop the skills necessary to successfully return to outpatient care and other aspects of life such as home, community and school.
The Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program is offered Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Transition Intensive Outpatient Program
The primary function of the Transition Intensive Outpatient Program is as a step-down from the Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program in order to provide support for patients who are transitioning back into their daily life and school. The program helps participants transition through strengthening abilities to identify triggers, utilize coping skills, communicate effectively, and manage stress. Program staff will support adolescents in better understanding their moods, thoughts, and behaviors.
Adolescents are expected to attend school during the half of the day that they are not in programming. Program hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. and on Tuesday and Friday from 12 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
