The Keys Partial Hospitalization Program
The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) at Central Florida Behavioral Hospital is an intensive outpatient level of care that offers access to a safe, structured environment that enables the patient to return home at night and maintain important family relationships. The program is five days a week and is designed for patients who require an intensive, comprehensive level of care. The patient who is most appropriate for this level of care may be experiencing problems at work, school, with family relationships or in social situations due to their mental health symptoms or co-occurring mental health/substance use disorder.
PHP utilizes group therapy to provide skill-based knowledge for the patients to create change in their lives by understanding the psychiatric diagnosis, the impact of life stressors, and learning to identify triggers and coping mechanisms for a successful, healthy lifestyle. Many of our patients have felt helpless, hopeless and have had thoughts of suicide, which prompted them to seek treatment.
Partial Hospitalization Program may be the right next step in the transition from inpatient to outpatient treatment and may sometimes be the recommended treatment instead of inpatient care. Central Florida Behavioral Hospital offers specialized programming based on the patient’s treatment needs.
Our Partial Hospitalization Program utilizes multiple treatment approaches and skills:
Skills that help people understand the connection between their thoughts and emotions and to develop alternate ways of thinking and behaving to improve functioning and decrease stress.
Our therapy provides clients with therapeutic skills to manage painful emotions, through the use of mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation and interpersonal effectiveness.
We provide an approach for the treatment of depression, anxiety and stress, addictions, borderline personality disorder, and a myriad of other psychological issues.
We help patients gain a level of acceptance in their lives and take guided actions toward their future with awareness and openness so the patient can engage fully in the present moment.
Mental Illness and Substance Use Disorder
Our Co-Occurring Disorders Partial Hospitalization Program provides treatment for people diagnosed with both a mental illness and substance use disorder.
