Partial Hospitalization Treatment
What is Partial Hospitalization Eating Disorder Treatment?
A Partial Hospitalization Treatment (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, 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.
