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.

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?

A typical treatment team includes dietitians, psychiatrists and counselors. Partial Hospital Programs typically operate three to five days a week, and hours can range anywhere from five to 12 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.

Clients will eat some of their meals at the treatment facility and some at home.
