What is Partial Hospitalization Eating Disorder Treatment?
A partial hospitalization program (PHP) falls on the continuum of mental healthcare between residential treatment and intensive outpatient or outpatient treatment. Partial hospital programs typically include individual, family and group counseling, as well as medication management, nutritional counseling and meal supervision.
The main difference between PHP and residential treatment is individuals do not live in the treatment centers, but rather go home each day to the comfort of their beds. This allows clients to receive much of the same structure as residential care during the day as well as the opportunity to begin practicing their skills as they transition to life outside the treatment program.
Partial Hospitalization Treatment at Center for Discovery
Most of our day programs – partial hospitalization and outpatient – take place in separate facilities from our residential facilities. We offer partial hospitalization treatment in many locations throughout the country.
What can I Expect in Partial Hospitalization Treatment?
There are both adolescent and adult programs. A typical treatment team includes dietitians, psychiatrists and counselors. Partial hospital programs typically operate five to six days a week, and hours can range anywhere from six to seven hours per day. Frequency of visits and number of hours usually depends on the individual’s needs, and programs will often taper both the number of hours and days per week of attendance as an individual progresses.
Patients will eat and be provided one or two meals/snacks at the facility for hands-on support and some meals/snacks will be eaten at home. This provides patients with the space to practice and implement the skills learned while in the program.
