The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) at Central Florida Behavioral Hospital is an intensive outpatient level of care that offers access to a secure, 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:
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. We incorporate a number of elements including groups specifically designed for people with dual disorders, education regarding medications and other steps to recovery from both illnesses, help in understanding the effects of substance use on their lives, and knowledge regarding substances of abuse and how they affect mental illness and medication.
Additional core components of this track are:
PHP treatment is provided by Licensed, Master’s level therapists and patients see the program psychiatrist at least weekly for medication management.
