For patients needing a step-down transition from acute inpatient care or an alternative to inpatient treatment, Forest View Hospital offers a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). The Partial Hospital Program is a structured course of intensive psychiatric treatment that operates Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. This unique program serves as an important component to the continuum of care for persons who are able to remain in the community during treatment and whose symptoms are too acute to benefit from weekly outpatient sessions.
Forest View Hospital provides partial hospital programming for adults, children and adolescents. Daily attendance is strongly recommended for consistency and symptom management. Lunch is included as part of the program. Each individual works collaboratively with an interdisciplinary treatment team. The team includes a psychiatrist, registered nurse, social worker/counselor and other professionals providing innovative and supportive services. Social workers/counselors collaborate with the patient’s outpatient providers and arrange for after care treatment.
Treatment in PHP can include specialty programs such as Eating Disorders, Psychological Trauma and Co-Occurring Disorders (Mental Illness combined with substance abuse). Patients in PHP are offered a variety of group therapy topics which may include Medication Education, Anger Management, Recovery from Addictions, Conflict Resolution, Depression Management, Anxiety Management, Coping Skills and Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills (DBT).
