Daily Treatment & Support for Adults
Garland Behavioral Hospital’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a mental health outpatient program at our Garland, Texas, treatment center. We’ve introduced this treatment program for adult patients who are experiencing emotional or mental health issues but do not require around-the-clock care in order to better meet the needs of our community.
What is a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)?
Our PHP offers extensive support and care but gives patients the flexibility to return home in the evening. Patients will attend treatment in the day, Monday through Friday, and then leave in the afternoon before returning in the morning to receive more treatment.
This flexibility is a good option for patients with family members who wish to spend time with them after treatment or those with other obligations that make extended inpatient treatment difficult, while also following a highly-structured treatment method that will be positive to their long-term mental health.
The Partial Hospitalization Program level of care is also an excellent option for patients who’ve finished an inpatient program, but still need a slightly less strict level of attention, support, and oversight that exceeds what is offered in more traditional outpatient programs. As a “step-down” from inpatient treatment, a Partial Hospitalization Program is a good way to begin to adjust to a life after treatment with needed structure they found in inpatient care but a gradual increase in freedom that will not rush patients back to their regular lives.
The longer a patient stays in the Continuum of Care, the more likely they are to find success in recovery. Our outpatient setting allows the patient to stay in treatment but work in smaller steps towards a healthier life. In the Continuum of Care, the natural step-down from a Partial Hospitalization Program would be an Intensive Outpatient Program.
PHP treatment can include everything from individual therapies and group therapies, to time with psychiatrists, support groups and more. What really separates PHP from inpatient treatment is the added flexibility and responsibilities given to the patient by allowing them to leave in the evening and then return the next day.
Patients in our php hospital are not an imminent risk to themselves or others but may slip into crisis if they do not receive some structured care. A support system of people and mental health professionals who understand what the patient is going through can be crucial to long-term recovery.
How is a PHP Structured?
Our PHP patients attend the program Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This structure, which can easily be compared to a school where students attend in the day, return home in the evening and then come back the next day, is built to be just what a patient needs to continue to heal in the presence of medical professionals but with more freedom and flexibility than an inpatient treatment center.
They see a psychiatrist within the first two days of treatment and will have sessions with the psychiatrist at least once a week from there. This is in addition to different individual and group therapy sessions among other treatment options designed to meet patient needs.
Each patient will work with the treatment team to create an individualized treatment plan, so program duration may vary based on the needs of the patient. After all, here at Garland Behavioral Hospital, we care about you and want to provide you with the best treatment.
The Partial Hospitalization Program at Garland Behavioral Hospital is here to help you get the treatment that you need based on who you are and exactly where you are in your journey.
PHP at Garland Behavioral Hospital meets Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
