Adult Partial Hospitalization Program

Partial Hospitalization Programming (PHP) is one of the many levels of care available to individuals who seek recovery services at Longleaf Hospital. This type of psychiatric care is offered for adult men and women age 18 above whose needs are such that they can safely return to their homes each evening.

Is The Partial Hospitalization Program Right For You?

Patients in PHP at Longleaf can demonstrate that they do not require the more intensive and structured treatment atmosphere that a residential treatment setting can provide. This program is an ideal choice both as a step-down level of care for those who have met their recovery goals while in the inpatient program at Longleaf, or for others whose needs are greater than what can be serviced in the traditional outpatient therapeutic setting.

A typical stay in Longleaf’s PHP lasts approximately 2-6 weeks, during which time each person will be supported by a multidisciplinary team of mental health professionals. Patients will have access to many types of treatment modalities during treatment, and most will participate in individual, group, and family therapies as needed.

Disorders Treated

Longleaf welcomes individuals into PHP at their center who have been struggling with all types of mental health concerns, and a typical PHP patient at this hospital is likely diagnosed with one or more of the following disorders or concerns:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bi-polar disorder
  • Self-harm
  • Schizophrenia
  • Schizoaffective Disorder
  • Substance use disorder
  • PTSD
  • Borderline personality disorder
  • ADHD
  • Oppositional defiant disorder
  • Intermittent explosive disorder
  • Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder

Medication Management

Many individuals enter PHP at Longleaf in need of medication management services. While Longleaf’s PHP does not provide comprehensive medical treatment, PHP patients will have access to twice-weekly meetings with a pharmacist, registered nurse, or medical doctor to monitor any psychiatric medications that have been prescribed as a part of treatment.

Our PHP Approach

Given the complexities involved in the treatment of mental illness, Longleaf maintains a holistic treatment planning approach which utilizes time-tested therapeutic techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, and 12-step programming for patients who are struggling with a co-occurring substance abuse concern.

During their time in PHP at Longleaf, each patient will be provided with a detailed plan of care which incorporates the precise interventions and services that will bolster his or her existing strengths, and help diminish his or her challenges to sustained recovery.
