Most of our clients start on the Partial Hospitalization level of care which is all day programming Monday through Friday from 9:30am to 4:30pm with an hour break for lunch. This level of care is our highest level of care where clients receive up to five individual sessions a week and twice as much clinical support than our next lower level of care. PHP is intended for stabilization and much needed clinical assessment when a client first begins outpatient treatment. This is six hours a day, five days a week.
PHP typically lasts the length of a month, but can be shorter or longer depending upon the individuals specific needs.
Next, clients begin IOP. Intensive Outpatient programming is meant for individuals who are beginning to integrate what they’ve learned in PHP into the real world. They are working or attending school or are actively pursuing one of these avenues or another. They could also be contributing to their community through volunteership if they are retired or do not need to work for other reasons. This is three hours a day, five days a week.
IOP typically lasts six weeks to two months, but can be shorter or longer depending on the individual’s specific needs.
Overall, our program lasts about three months (90 days), but we have had individuals who have completed one month of treatment and others who have stayed for up to nine months and longer as their preference.
