Partial Hospitalization

The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a day treatment program developed as an alternative to inpatient treatment for adults with serious and persistent mental health conditions.  The program is designed for voluntary consumers who require intensive structure and supervision under a day treatment model, with the purpose of stabilizing in order to remain in the community.  PHP provides comprehensive, coordinated, multi-disciplinary, intensive, time-limited treatment in a highly structured setting. 



PHP provides services to consumers five days a week between the hours of 8am and 2pm with occasional late afternoon activities.  The daily schedule provides structured therapeutic groups, social activities, and one on one interventions with direct staff supervision during all operational hours.  In addition, ongoing psychiatric assessment and medication monitoring are incorporated into the therapeutic milieu of PHP.



Partial Hospitalization Program is funded primarily through Medicaid funds and private pay.  For more information, contact Cheryl Johnston, Program Manager (757) 788-0150.



PHP's mission is to improve the quality of life of personal with serious mental illness, to provide maximum opportunity to receive services while remaining in the least restrictive setting, to promote community stability and consumer well being, and to provide an environment and support where individuals can build self esteem, self confidence and support systems.
