The Partial Hospitalization Program is offered Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for adolescents. Lunch is provided for patients from 12:00 p.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Following completion of the Partial Hospitalization Program, an appropriate referral will be made for the patient to continue treatment in the least restrictive level of care possible (i.e., intensive outpatient, outpatient, support group, etc.) The level of care recommended is determined by the individual needs of the patient.
