Partial Hospital Program (PHP)

The adult Partial Hospital Program is a day treatment program specifically designed for the diagnosis and treatment of a mental disorder when there is reasonable expectation for improvement or when it is necessary to maintain a patient’s functional level and prevent relapse or full hospitalization.

It is a voluntary program that may shorten the length of stay in the hospital or serve as a transition from inpatient to outpatient care for some patients.

The adult Partial Hospital Program is a short-term treatment program that is group based. A multidisciplinary team facilitates care in the program.
