Acute Partial Hospitalization Program
The Acute Partial Hospitalization Program (APHP) is designed to provide a therapeutic environment for children who find it difficult to function in school and community environments. The goal of the program is to help stabilize a child’s behavior as an alternative to hospitalization or residential treatment, or as ongoing support following a youth’s discharge from such care. The focus of the program is to provide intensive multidisciplinary mental health care during the day, allowing the child to reside in their home.
The program serves children ages 5 to 18 years old who suffer from moderate to profound acute psychiatric disorders that impair social, vocational, and / or educational abilities.
Services include: psychiatric evaluations, substance abuse screening, medication monitoring, individual, group, and family therapy, case management, tutorial services, behavioral modification and crisis management/intervention services, and assistance in setting up aftercare for the child when they are prepared to leave the program.
