Partial Hospitalization Program
Partial hospitalization is a type of treatment designed for patients who are moving from inpatient care or who need more intensive treatment than our standard outpatient program for a range of conditions. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the number of hours the patient spends at the facility.
Patients in the partial hospitalization program (PHP) meet for four treatment hours each day, five days per week, depending on progress and needs. Our program is designed to serve two types of patients:
- Those who are making the transition from inpatient care to the community
- Those who are already in an outpatient program but need more intensive counseling to keep them from regressing to the point they need to be hospitalized
Therapies to Meet Treatment Goals
The Atrium Health Floyd Medical Center Behavioral Health Partial Hospitalization Program primarily uses group therapy, but also includes individual and family sessions when necessary to meet treatment goals. Therapists also help family members understand their own hurt and anger, and show them how they can support their loved one on the path to recovery. The program is overseen by a psychiatrist who helps in planning an individualized treatment program to meet the needs of each patient. Transportation is available for our partial hospitalization program and morning snacks and lunch are provided to patients in the program.
Mental Health and Substance Abuse Program
Our combined mental health and substance abuse treatment center has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom originates – either from a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse, so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in identifying symptoms to keep treatment on track.
The Adult Mental Health and Substance Abuse Partial Hospitalization Program is a day program. The hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
